Leaders at the Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority would like to remind all Pinellas County citizens that PSTA bus routes serve nearly every polling location in the county. PSTA has partnered with the Supervisor of Elections office to develop a list of polling locations along with the corresponding PSTA routes that serve them. Riders can find a link to that list right on the PSTA home page at www.PSTA.net.
“Our leaders and staff encourage everyone to get out and exercise their right to vote on November 6th. Plus, when they ride PSTA to their polling locations, voters won’t have to worry about navigating crowded parking lots,” says PSTA spokesperson Bob Lasher. Prospective voters can look up their designated polling location by visiting the Supervisor of Elections website at www.votepinellas.com. Then, once they know their location, they can find the bus routes that serve that site at www.PSTA.net.
