Each month, PSTA’s CEO puts together a summary of topics discussed at the Board of Directors meeting. Here is that report from the July 25th meeting:
Greenlight Pinellas Bus Plan
- After more than a year of rider surveys & dozens of public meetings, PSTA’s consultant presented their recommendations for the future Pinellas bus system that responds to a variety of funding scenarios.
- No matter the funding, the scenarios are designed to provide the most efficient, sustainable network of transit services that funding can support.
The PSTA Board was presented with 2 options today:
- Plan A: New Revenue Scenario – where today’s PSTA bus service would be expanded by 65% if voters approve the 1% sales tax in 2014.
- Plan B: No New Revenue Scenario – where 28% of today’s service would be cut in 2017. Routes would be eliminated or run less frequently and Saturday and Sunday service would be substantially reduced.
