Hm, I’m used to the DC area where every hotel (and even moderately-nice apartment complexes!) seems to have a shuttle to DCA or the nearest Metro. Guess that isn’t so much an option in PGH.

Yeah. My knowledge is due to Anthrocon being there every year since 2006 (with obvious exception). There used to be a private airport shuttle service, but that was bought out by SuperShuttle. The only alternative to the airport is the Port Authority Transit's 28X bus... or a taxi.

Coach USA in Pittsburgh frequently ran Amtrak bustitutions. I'm sure they'd have obliged. Alliance is the only intermediate stop.

Yeah, but that'll be a full 50 passenger commuter bus VS how many were transferring? It probably wasn't enough to justify the coach.
