Pittsburgh Transportation Group provides daily shuttle service from area hotels to the Meadows Race Track & Casino.

PITTSBURGH, Penn. — PTG has started providing a new shuttle service for guests at nine Washington County hotels who want to visit the THE MEADOWS RACETRACK & CASINO.

The 25-passenger shuttle will run from 3 p.m. to midnight Sunday through Thursday and 3 p.m. to 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday. Hotels participating in the shuttle service include: Hilton Garden Southpointe, Homewood Suites Southpointe, Candlewood Suites Southpointe, Country Inn & Suites Washington, Comfort Inn Meadowlands, Hampton Inn Meadowlands, Comfort Suites Washington, Hampton Inn Washington and Springhill Suites Washington.

Tickets for the shuttle service cost $10 and each rider will also receive a coupon for $10 in free play at the Meadows Casino.

“We listen to our guests, and as more plan overnight stops in order to take in all of our entertainment offerings, we’ve received requests for a shuttle service,” said Meadows vice president and general manager Sean Sullivan. “The Meadows looks forward to working with Pittsburgh Transportation Group to make sure our guests are transported safely and comfortably from many of our great area hotels.”

Jamie Campolongo, president and CEO of Pittsburgh Transportation Group (PTG), said, “This partnership with the Meadows and the Washington County Tourism Promotion Agency is just another example of the economic benefits of trust and cooperation.”

PTG, now fully owned by Veolia Transportation, North America’s largest transportation company, operates Yellow Cab, People’s Cab, Super Shuttle, ExecuCar, PTG Charter Services and Freedom Coach. PTG has 450 independent operators and 350 employees. The company owns and operates over 500 taxis, shuttle buses, vans and limousines serving the Greater Pittsburgh area.
