Buses inherited from other Pittsburgh area operators at takeover

This list is incomplete.

Pittsburgh Railways Company

By far, the largest takeover, the Pittsburgh Railways Company was the first takeover (through eminent domain laws), which occurred on March 1, 1964. The formal acquisition, however, was tied up in the courts through litigation until 1967, due to arguments over the value of the PRC assets. At the point of takeover, the Port Authority acquired 287 streetcars (trolleys) and 219 conventional transit buses.

Due to the deteriorated shape of many of the vehicles, the Port Authority scrapped all non-GMC buses within the year of the takeover, and began the closure of a number of streetcar lines. The elimination of these buses began a standardization of the fleet, in hopes of cost savings not needing to carry parts for too many different types of vehicles.
