Port Authority Contract

Chatham students, faculty, and staff may use their Chatham ID cards to board any Port Authority transit (PAT) bus, light rail vehicle or the Duquesne and Monongahela Inclines for free. This service provides unlimited rides to Downtown, Pittsburgh and throughout nearly all areas of Allegheny County.

How to use: Chatham ID cardholders can scan their Chatham ID cards upon entering the Port Authority Transport vehicle for their ride.

Technical Issues

In the rare occurrence of a technical glitch leading to declined public transportation access, a rider can do the following depending upon the circumstance:

  • Notify the driver that Chatham University has an active agreement with Port Authority and show the driver their valid Chatham ID card with valid expiration date, and permission to stay on the ride should be granted.
  • Visit the OSA during regular business hours to have their Chatham ID card replaced. *
