Handicap Access and the Church Driveway on Sunday Mornings
Please note that no parking is permitted on the right side of our church driveway on Sunday mornings. This is the side directly in front of the pathway to the Garden Lobby. This pathway provides access for members and visitors with mobility difficulties and must be kept clear.
The left side of the driveway ONLY may accommodate two vehicles with handicapped placards. If you are able-bodied, please also leave the parking spaces on Morewood Avenue between the driveway and the corner of Ellsworth free for individuals who need to be close.
Many Port Authority buses run past or near First Unitarian. You can obtain time and fare information directly from the Port Authority of Allegheny County website or by calling the Port Authority at 412-442-2000.
