Pittsburgh Airport - Bus or Shuttle?

My husband and I are headed to Pittsburgh tomorrow morning to watch the Cubs lose to the Pirates. Then we'll watch them lose on Saturday, then we head home.

We need to get to 700 Liberty Ave in the city. I'm wondering if the 28x bus is the way to go? A shuttle costs about $50, whereas the bus costs about $7.

Does anyone have experience with the 28x bus?

I've had good experience with the bus. They seem to run on time and part of the route is on a dedicated bus road, so traffic is less of an issue. It stops about a block from where you're going.

And remember, they're playing the Pirates, so the Cubs have a shot.

Well we are back.

We used the 28x bus to get to the city on Friday, then return to the airport on Sunday. It was great - on time, clean, and cheap. I don't know why anyone would use anything else.

And the Cubs did not disappoint. They lost spectacularly 3 days in a row.

So does this bus go near the PCA park. We are staying at the Hyatt Place.

Hey Queenie:

Maybe next time you plan a trip to watch the Cubs, you should begin with a more optimistic approach. While I understand your skepticism, among those who follow and love the game there is a deeply regarded tradition of superstition and an appreciation for the powers that control a play. Even though your comments may have been tongue-in-cheek, it matters not to the baseball gods. Acknowledge them and prosper.

-(thank you EricH for your info)
