Evidently you cannot find any Thruway schedule for this location because there is no such service here.

I suspect that transportation from Arnold Palmer would be somewhere between a Putter and a Driver.

A request to go from Pittsburgh to Latrobe on February 23 showed the Pennsylvanian, which departs Pittsburgh at 7:30 a.m.

A request to go from Pittsburgh to Latrobe - Arnold Palmer Airport showed two Thruway buses.  The first leaves the Grant Street Transfer Center in Pittsburgh at 9:20 a.m. and arrives in Latrobe at 10:40 a.m.  The second schedule leaves at at 1:05 p.m. and arrives in Latrobe at 2:25 p.m. 

Passengers are adivsed that they are responsible for getting from the Pittsburgh Amtrak Station to the Grant Street Transfer Center.  It appears that the bus stops at the Latrobe Airport and the Latrobe Amtrak Station.  This is a Thruway bus service from Pittsburgh.  It is not a connecting service from the Amtrak Station in Latrobe.

As a side note, I have been to Latrobe many times.  It is among other things where my mother was born.

The westbound buses for Pittsburgh leave Latrobe - Arnold Palmer Airport - at 4:45 p.m. and 11.35 p.m.  The Pennsylvanian leaves Latrobe for Pittsburgh at 6:51 p.m.

The Truway service is operated by Greyhound.  The lowest priced ticket booked through Greyhound is $19.  The lowest price ticket booked through Amtrak is $21.  Presumably a passenger booking through Amtrak is connecting with the Capitol Limited.
