A bus operator for the Port Authority of Allegheny County has tested positive for COVID-19.

The operator is receiving medical attention at an area hospital.


“First and foremost, we want to wish our employee a speedy recovery,” said Port Authority CEO Katharine Kelleman. “The health and safety of our employees is our top priority now more than ever, and while this case hits close to home, it will not deter us from continuing to provide bus, rail and ACCESS service during this difficult time. We’re in this together and we will get through it together.”

The Port Authority said the employee was exposed to the virus outside of work and that no other information will be provided to protect their identity.
