Borough mulls busway accord
    Negotiations continue between Edgewood and Port Authority on a cooperation agreement for the transit agency's busway extension project.
    The pact would give Port Authority needed borough permits and provide infrastructure benefits to Edgewood. But some in the borough, who long have favored light-rail service, don't want Edgewood to compromise with Port Authority over the busway, even if potentially costly litigation results.
    What stance should Edgewood take toward the busway agreement Port Authority is seeking?

The PA Main Line Trail would provide Pittsburgh with a 22 mile loop of trails all the way around the city. The opportunity to complete this loop is tied in with the conversion of the busway to light rail. We must work together to prevent this chance from slipping away.
