PITTSBURGH PUBLIC SCHOOLS ANNOUNCE CONTINGENCY PLANS IN EVENT OF PORT AUTHORITY STRIKE

 PITTSBURGH PUBLIC SCHOOLS ANNOUNCE CONTINGENCY PLANS
 IN EVENT OF PORT AUTHORITY STRIKE
 PITTSBURGH, March 13 /PRNewswire/ -- A strike by Port Authority Transit (PAT) drivers will affect approximately 4,500 city students attending public, private and parochial high schools. In the event of a work stoppage, the Pittsburgh School District will ask any parents with the means of transportation to help their children get to school until district staff can develop alternatives to PAT buses for those students eligible to receive board-sponsored transportation.
 The task is especially difficult because there are not enough licensed bus drivers in the area to replace PAT routes with private carriers. The district's only option is to alter schedules at certain high schools on a temporary basis to make maximum use of the private carriers who currently serve the schools.
 The district urges both parties to arrive at a quick settlement.
