Hertz in Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh has a long association with car manufacturing, and is a city that is seemingly tailor-made for driving. Getting around the sights in comfort and at your own leisure is made easy with Hertz car rental in Pittsburgh at several branches throughout the city.

The highways in Pittsburgh are beautifully maintained and are the quickest way of getting around the many sights of this exciting metropolis. Attractions include the Carnegie Museum of Art, Andy Warhol Museum and Mount Washington. Most venues here have their own parking too, so you don’t need to worry about finding a space.

Driving and Parking in Pittsburgh

You will need a full driving licence and must be over 21 to rent a car in Pittsburgh. You will also usually need an International Driving Permit (IDP), although most national driving licences are recognised. For more information about driving regulations in Pittsburgh, take a look at our page about renting a car in the USA.

There are numerous different parking options in the city, including municipal car parks, private garages and parks and a selection of on-street parking. It’s more difficult to find parking spaces during the rush hours but not impossible, and many visitors find it convenient to park in the suburbs and take public transport into the downtown area.

Rates for downtown garages range from $8 to $16 per hour, and rather than looking for a parking lot during the week it can be better to take a look at the fringe lots. $4 per day is not uncommon for these, and then it’s simply a matter of taking a short shuttle ride into town. The city has designated cleaning days on many of its streets and notices will go up to stop you parking on-street at those times.

Key routes

Pittsburgh has numerous highways and trunk roads connecting different parts of the city, and a network of smaller roads into the denser suburbs. The rivers and hills of the area make driving an unusually eventful experience from a scenic point of view.

I-376, known locally as Parkway East, connects central Pittsburgh to Pennsylvania Turnpike over to the east.

There is no beltway as in most US cities, but the I-76, I-70 and I-79 form a rough triangle which functions in a similar manner to one.

I-579 – the Crosstown Expressway – branches off from the I-279 to take the strain off traffic heading north from downtown and takes visitors to the Consol Energy Centre and Convention Centre.

Major Highways

Parkway North is a section of I-579 in the north of Pittsburgh that crosses Veterans bridge and has HOV lanes to ease traffic congestion in the rush hour. Keep a few things in mind when using this and other routes in the Pittsburgh area:

• There are numerous stop signs in Pittsburgh and the fines are heavy for attempting to jump red lights.
• The congested downtown area of Pittsburgh has many pedestrian crossings so negotiate this part of town with a degree of patience.
• Drive on the right side of the road throughout the US.
• If seat belts are fitted, use them.
• You’ll be required to wait patiently behind a school bus that has stopped and has its red lights flashing. Do not attempt to overtake it.
• Always have on you your full driver documentation with a current photo, in case a routine check pulls you over to the side.
• Unlike in Europe, at red lights you are allowed to make a right turn if the coast is clear.
