PSTA is asking for public input to help develop several, innovative, new transit routes in northern Pinellas County. The new services — which we’ll call Regional Connector Routes — will use 16-person mini-buses operating on regularly scheduled routes. What makes these routes special is that you’ll be able to call us in advance and arrange to be picked up off the route – up to 3/4 of a mile from the route’s regular path. After your pickup the bus returns to the scheduled route and will connect to various destinations including other PSTA, HART and PCPT bus routes.
To help us make this service a success, we’re inviting residents in northern Pinellas County to fill out a short survey so we can learn more about the way you travel in and around the area — please click here to participate! We will use the information gathered in the survey to develop the routing, destinations and operating times that are most suited for the desires of north county residents. Our plan is to introduce these new services at the end of this year.
PSTA staff will also be making presentations to as many civic, community, business, educational and religious groups as possible to tell people more about the new services and to give them an opportunity fill out surveys in person. To schedule a presentation, please call our Community Relations Manager Bob Lasher at (727) 540-1874.
Thanks for helping us create new service!
