car-free in pittsburgh, seeking advice
That said, we're a little inexperienced with the busses here. We live at the very south end of Squirrel Hill, south of Forward Ave, just off Beechwood and we both take the 61C or D to Oakland regularly, or we walk to Forbes and take a 61A or B, which is just as fast, if we haven't checked the 61D schedule and don't want to wait.
But futher than that we have not explored. I know we can always check the PAT website to plan a route, but I was looking for advice from experience, particularly quick and easy routes you've found around town. Or new bike riding routes for the summer, since we won't be able to get to the Yough trail (unless we take the bikes on a bus to McKeesport, anyone tried this?). Or good resources on Murray, Forbes and in Oakland that would make travelling further afield unneccesary.
For example, is there anywhere to get long, tube fluorescent lights, like for a kitchen? 'Cause we're cooking in the dark, which is kind of fun, but not for long.
Does Giant Eagle sell parmigiano reggiano? And at what price?
And thanks again. If you see me, hauling 5 ft fluorescent lights through the snow, give a friendly wave.
