The Spine Line
Spine Line is a proposed transit line from Downtown
Pittsburgh to the Oakland area of Pittsburgh and possibly beyond, with
some proposals going as far as Monroeville. It has a long history,
apparently starting in 1907 and being serious considered in the 1960s
with many starts and stops since then. Several studies have been
made. These studies suggest various routes and modes (complete
subways, at grade light-rail, bus rapid transit, and various
combinations). Here is historical information gathered on the concept
up to Spring 2012.
Note large gap in years here. We can refer to these as the
It's Dunn years.
