Transit Oriented Food

Rail~Volution Pittsburgh's top food destinations

We are excited to welcome a record-breaking Rail~Volution crowd to Pittsburgh this month! As such, we will be using the conference’s hashtag to invite our friends from out of town to take local transit to food and drink spots all around the city. We’ve asked Yinzers (Pittsburghers) to tell us their favorite places to eat and drink, have lunch and dinner, all around the ‘Burgh—and how they’d get there from Dahntahn. Check out some of our favorites here, and follow the Rail~Volution hashtag on Twitter during the conference to learn about all the best Transit-Oriented Food Pittsburgh has to offer.

Follow #RVPGH and #FOODTOD during the conference to see where other Pittsburghers in the know are eating, and join us on light rail, bus, bikeshare, or incline!
