is a campus map in pdf.
International Airport (PIT)
is 20.5 miles away from the University of
Pittsburgh (25-45 minutes driving time depending on the time of day). Here
are some options to get to campus from the airport.
- Yellow Cab
(412-321-8100). Average fare from the airport to campus is
(1-800-258-3826). Fare is $25 each way between Oakland and the airport.
- City Bus:
the 28X Airport Flyer. The fare is $3.75 each way; exact change is
required. To take it to the hotel, get off at Forbes Ave at Schenley
Drive and walk toward
the Cathedral of Learning (big tower across the street; can't miss it).
Here is a Google map with a few food and coffee options, focusing on
some local landmarks (your uncle who worships Guy Fieri really wants you to
go to Primanti Bros). There are many others; in particular, the stretch
of Forbes between Meyran Ave and Bouquet Street is crawling with restaurants.
