From Dormont Resident – “If you can, drive to the blue/silver line. The closest place with free parking is the St. Anne’s stop. The next would be Washington Junction on PA88 right past Connor Rd.”

From Dormont Resident – “I asked the bus shuttle driver, he recommended taking the T outbound from Potomac to Overbrook and transferring to an inbound rail car at Willow. The bus shuttle is more fluid, the T will have a schedule.”
