Fayette Area Coordinated Transportation, known by the moniker of FACT, is a public transportation service located in Fayette County, Pennsylvania. It provides inter-city bus and paratransit service to select communities within the county. Because the region is located within the metropolitan (but not the urban) area of Pittsburgh, four times per day service is provided to the Downtown Pittsburgh area. In 2009, the Connellsville-Uniontown Route was extended[1] into Westmoreland County to the Countryside Plaza Shopping Center, near Mount Pleasant.

Hubs and Stations

There are two Hubs in the county, each with a park and ride lot, and a Bus Station to handle "after-hours" traffic that comes with a bench and minimal shelter from the elements.

Transit Center

The FACT Transit Center, locate at the Connellsville Airport Complex in Dunbar Township, was completed in 2005. There is a Waiting Area, Comfort Station, Vending Machines, and the Admiministrative Offices, as well as the Bus Garages. There is a 40-vehicle park and ride located here, where the Pittsburgh Commuter and Connellsvlle-Uniontown Routes are accessible to the rider in a safe and secure environment.

Transfer Center

In 2010, the Transfer Center opened[2] in the Fayette County Business Park in South Union Township. The 1,072 square feet (99.6 m2) facility is open Monday - Friday and all Public Buses stop at the center at regular intervals. The center is also equipped with Vending Machines, Comfort Station, Waiting Area, and a Ticket/Token Office. One can also receive real-time bus information. There is also a Park-and-Ride lot there with a capacity of 40 vehicles in a safe and secure environment.

Uniontown Hub

The Uniontown Hub is located at Church and Beeson Streets in Uniontown. There is only a bench and minnimal shelter here. Public-Transit Buses stop here when the Transfer Center is closed on nights and weekends
