This is a past event.

Pitt-Johnstown Mountain Cat Express: Thanksgiving Trips to Pittsburgh and Harrisburg/Philadelphia

In an effort to help meet the travel needs of our students from an ever-wider geographic region, we are pleased to have implemented the Mountain Cat Express, providing transportation for students to and from the Pittsburgh and Harrisburg/Philadelphia areas.

Upcoming trips:

  • Winter Recess: departing December 17; returning January 9, 2022 
  • Spring Recess: Friday March 4; Returning March 13

Seating is limited and registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.  Students will be asked to provide a $10 cash/check deposit once approved for the trip in order for us to secure the reservation. The cash/check are returned to the student at boarding time at the bus.  If you need to discuss options on the deposit, please contact Heather Hall at hbh7@pitt.edu.   The deposit is necessary due to the demand for the trips.  Failure to cancel your attendance on the trip results in the university keeping the deposit. 

A waiting list is secured and will be managed as folks communicate their plans.
