The Port Authority of Allegheny County announced that it would host “Public Transit: A Community Discussion,” a series of public meetings to talk about upcoming projects inside of the communities the new programs will affect.

According to a Monday press release, the meetings will focus on the Port Authority’s use of technology, passenger fare policy and other issues it has received from riders. Attendees will also be able to ask the panel questions during the discussion, the email said. The members of the panel have yet to be announced.

Katharine Kelleman, Port Authority’s chief executive officer, said in the release that her goal for the discussions is to develop an understanding of how communities around Pittsburgh are affected by changes to Port Authority policies, as well as allowing citizens to voice their concerns on the upcoming projects.

“We felt it was important to hold these get-togethers now so we can talk about these issues before we make any major decisions,” Kelleman said.
