  • The 77/54 was nicknamed the "Flying Fraction" by KDKA-AM radio personality Rege Cordic.

  • Starting in Brentwood, the streetcar passed through Carrick and the South Side, crossed the 22nd Street Bridge, and traveled to Oakland, Bloomfield and the Strip District before crossing the 16th Street Bridge to reach the end of the route on the North Side of Pittsburgh.

  • 22nd Street Bridge streetcar crossings were halted in 1963 due to deteriorating bridge conditions. Soon after the streetcar traffic was halted Route 77/54 North Side-Carrick Via Bloomfield was closed
