Getting to PNC
There are various ways to get to a game at PNC Park, some scenic and others simply practical.
Take the T: The T, Pittsburgh’s light rail line, runs from the South Hills to downtown. Board the T anywhere and ride it to the Wood Street or Gateway Center stations. Get off there and head across the Clemente Bridge to the park. There are also various bus lines that serve downtown. Visit the web site of the Port Authority of Allegheny County here.
The Gateway Clipper Fleet: Regarded as the largest inland riverboat fleet in the United States, the Clipper provides shuttle service to all Pirates games on the North Shore. Park in the Station Square garage or in one of its lots and enjoy a sail on Pittsburgh’s rivers, complete with excellent views of the city and a docking point right below PNC Park. Round-trip tickets are $10, and parking at Station Square is $6.
The Clemente Bridge: Walking across the Clemente Bridge is one of the best ways to get to a game at PNC Park. The park is in constant view to the left as fans make their way across the bridge in droves toward the pre-game festivities on Federal Street. The bridge is closed to vehicular traffic on game-days and besides the fans is full of vendors hawking water and peanuts and Pirates paraphernalia.
Driving: Traffic may be hectic but finding a parking spot in one of the many nearby lots usually is not. The Pirates provide driving directions on their web site here…. There are plenty of lots and garages in the North Shore around PNC and Heinz Field, with prices normally in the $15-25 range. It’s a good option, especially if you’re planning on doing some tailgating. A cheaper choice is to park at a downtown lot, usually about $5, and walk across the Clemente Bridge. Or you can drive around looking for street parking downtown, which is free on weekends and after 6 p.m. on weekdays.
