Parking Options

Due to the very limited parking at the USC High School parking lot, there are four auxiliary parking lots available to Town Hall South members:

  • Westminster Presbyterian Church South parking lot
  • Westminster Presbyterian Church North parking lot
  • Marmion parking lot – located at McLaughlin Run Road and Morrow Road
  • St. Clair Country Club parking lot – for those attending the luncheon following the lecture.

Six shuttle busses, graciously provided by the Community Foundation of Upper St. Clair, service all four THS auxiliary parking lot locations. Bus signs are color coded for easier identification.  In addition to bus signs being placed in the bus windows, there will also be colored bus signs placed outside of the theater entrance doors designating where each particular bus will stop for passenger pick-up when exiting the lecture.

BLUE – Westminster South Lot, High School side
GREEN – Westminster North Lot, Gilfillan Trail side
ORANGE – Marmion
PINK – St. Clair Country Club

The buses start picking up from the auxiliary lots at approximately 9:15 a.m.  They do not run on a specific schedule because they leave the various lots as they fill. They make continuous loops until the lecture starts. Following the lecture, the buses will continue to loop to parking lots until all patrons have had their books signed and everyone waiting for a shuttle bus has been served. There are three buses shuttling to/from the St. Clair Country Club. 

Handicapped Parking

A limited number of handicapped parking spots are available in the high school parking lot near the theater entrance.

Cell Phones

As a courtesy to our speakers and to all those attending the lecture, please SILENCE or TURN OFF your cell phone prior to the start of the lectures.


NO flash photography or videos are permitted to be taken during the lecture without prior consent from the Town Hall South Board.
