Old New B&O Pittsburgh Port Authority Mckeesport Train/Bus Station to be torn down.

Last used by last PAT train maybe Amtrak in late 1980s. Built 1970s as part of B&O Mcee Now used as a bus turnaround & outdoor public bathroom. Inside has been closed for 10 years bathroom only open to union bus driver not the riding public. PAT is going to demolish the building but while intending to build its replacement has no contracts nor design for its replacement. Mckeesport was a regional retail center up untill 1990 and now is a complete abandoned hole of a downtown.
