Oakmont may be one of the prettiest little towns in America.

With a picturesque location along Allegheny River and a mere three square miles in size, Oakmont is a postcard of small town America with a walking school district and a fashionable shopping area.

Everyone in Oakmont walks everywhere, to the post office, library and especially along the walking trail that traverses through town connecting the business district to the nearby neighborhoods. Its size makes Oakmont an ideal place for residents and visitors to meet, many who come to spend an afternoon shopping, dining or walking the town with young ones, friends or a beloved pooch. 

And, of course, there's a legendary golf course that seems to attract a lot of attention, especially during tournament season. What's that all about? Take a look! 

Oakmont is served by the 78 and P78 Port Authority bus routes. The P78 provides express rush hour service to Downtown Pittsburgh, while the 78 offers off-peak service to the Wilkinsburg busway station, where riders can connect to a number of routes. Selected trips on the P16 express route from Penn Hills also offer service to Oakmont.
