Learn more about ConnectCard!

Port Authority of Allegheny County is now rolling out ConnectCard, a new smart card fare system that will replace paper transit passes and tickets. With ConnectCard, passes and fare value are loaded onto a reusable plastic card that's more convenient and secure than paper passes or cash.

Riders can buy ConnectCards at Port Authority's Downtown Service Center, nearly 50 Giant Eagle locations and a growing number of other retailers.

This website is your place to learn everything about ConnectCard. We suggest checking out our Get Started page first.

Be sure to check back here from time to time. We'll be adding more information as the ConnectCard program grows.
