Is my PittsburghPASS transferable?

Yes! If you cannot make it to one of the venues included in the PittsburghPASS, then you can share that admission ticket with a friend before the year's season ends (it may even make a great gift)!  Additionally, if you already have a yearly membership to one of the venues included in the PittsburghPASS, no problem; you can also share or gift that particular PittsburghPASS admission ticket with a friend (or invite grandma to your next outing)!

What are blackout dates?

Blackout dates are days in which the venue will not accept admission because the venue will be closed for operation on that particular day.
