Transit Update from the CEO – June 2013

Each month, PSTA’s CEO puts together a summary of topics discussed at the Board of Directors meeting. Here is that report from the June 26th meeting: 

5 Different Ways PSTA’s FY2014 Invests in Your Community

Untitled-1Click Here for DRAFT FY2014 PSTA Budget

The PSTA Board positively accepted my draft FY2014 Budget proposal today with 5 key initiatives:

  1. Invest Record Ridership-Driven Fare Revenues to replace our oldest fleet with new Hybrid-Electric buses.
  2. Maintain a balanced budget through FY2016 when the potential sales tax would replace property tax to support the system.
  3. Add Late-Night Hours, Holiday Hours, New Technology, and New Transit Facilities
  4. Maintain commitment to Greenlight Pinellas Outreach Process
  5. Invest responsibly in PSTA employees.

Saving Money on Diesel Fuel

IUntitled-2n addition to PSTA’s commitment to reduce our fuel consumption through the use of hybrid-electric technology, PSTA can now save money on the fuel we do buy by expanding the ability to purchase off of diesel fuel futures contracts when prices are lower.

Greenlight Pinellas Wants You to Participate

Sincerely,
Brad Miller
Chief Executive Officer
Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority (PSTA)

    Please replace disintegrating bus benches.

  3. Mr. Royse – we’d be happy to look into replacing the benches you mentioned. Can you please provide me with the bus stop numbers for the locations so we can investigate?
    Thanks! ~Cyndi
