Top tips for renting a car in Pittsburgh

  • Pittsburgh has a lot to offer, from its Andy Warhol Museum to the Sandcastle Water Park and the Carnegie Museum of Natural History. What better way to explore every dream destination than with a rental car? The flexibility that comes from renting a car will also allow travelers to explore other attractions like the Pittsburgh Zoo, which is located in the northeast of the city, or to be in the city center quickly when coming from the airport, which is situated over 20 miles from the center of Pittsburgh.
  • The easiest and most convenient way is to rent a car at Pittsburgh International Airport upon arrival. With rental service desks from companies like Avis, Enterprise, and Hertz located at the Baggage Claim area in the Landside Terminal, a rental car is just a stone’s throw away and will bring you into Pittsburgh in about half an hour.
  • Unlike many other American cities, Pittsburgh is not fully structured according to a road grid; therefore, navigating through the streets may be confusing at first. Simply ask for a satnav when renting the car and follow the instructions. Also be aware that construction sites are common in Pittsburgh, so make sure to look out for them and circumnavigate accordingly. Downtown streets tend to be narrow, so be careful when driving through them.
  • Try to avoid driving through Pittsburgh during rush hour, which starts as early as 4 am in the morning for people are commuting to the airport to catch flights into other cities. It usually lasts until 10 am; during this time, the I-376 E can be clogged up and traffic is severely increased. Between 3 and 6 pm, the afternoon rush hour starts due to workers returning to their homes, and if possible, these peak times should be avoided. Especially when going to the airport, make sure to plan plenty of time ahead (at least 2 hours).
