Driving in Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh city spills out around beautiful wide rivers, so the roads don’t follow a set layout. Unlike other US cities such as New York and Salt Lake City, Pittsburgh wasn’t built on a grid system, so it’s best to have a GPS with you. Watch out for the lane changes on Fort Pitt Bridge if you’re heading into town.

Getting to and from Pittsburgh airport

Pittsburgh International Airport is located 18 miles northwest of the city, with the drive into town taking around 25 minutes. Head out onto the I-376 and follow the signs straight into the CBD. If you’ve chosen to pick up your rental car in the city, jump on the 28X Airport Flyer bus or hail a cab.

Tips for driving rental cars in Pittsburgh

It’s important to be aware of the road rules when you’re driving in a new place. Take note of these tips to ensure you’re driving safely from PIT or even any of the airports, and see our USA driving guide for more information.

  • In the United States, motorists drive on the right-hand side.
  • You may turn right at a red light unless otherwise stated.
  • Watch out for four-way stops. The vehicle which arrives first has the right of way, and if two arrive at the same time, give way to your right.
  • When driving on the Interstate, keep a safe distance between your vehicle and the car in front. 

Check out our guide to USA driving distances to get an idea of how far you can get in your hired cars.
