04-12-2010 -- CCAC partners with ACTA to provide transportation to West Hills center
PITTSBURGH-Beginning today, the Community College of Allegheny
County (CCAC) will partner with the Airport Corridor Transportation
Association (ACTA) to provide free transportation for students to
the college's West Hills center at 1000 McKee Road, Oakdale.
CCAC has entered the partnership with ACTA to continue to meet
the transportation needs of students at West Hills center. Recent
route changes by the Port Authority have reduced its frequency of
service to the center.
ACTA will provide a shuttle on demand from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.
between the Port Authority bus stop at the IKEA store, Robinson
Town Centre, and West Hills center, an approximately 5-minute trip.
The service is free to students, who can call ACTA at
1.888.600.1100 to schedule a pickup. Riders may also schedule
service in advance.
CCAC and ACTA have made a service arrangement through August,
although CCAC plans to continue to offer transportation solutions
into the fall term. Approximately 25 students currently use public
transportation to attend classes at West Hills center.
