Pinellas County families can beat high prices at the pump this summer by taking advantage of PSTA’s easy and affordable Summer Youth Haul Pass. For only $35, kids ages 18 and younger get unlimited transportation on PSTA all summer long. (Excludes the 100X and 300X routes to Tampa.) That comes out to less than $2.40 a week for unlimited rides from May 15 – August 31, 2014. Not only will the Haul Pass save parents time and money, but it gives kids the freedom and independence they crave to commute to work, head to the beach or meet up with friends.
Middle and high school aged kids will need a school, government or PSTA issued photo ID to use the Summer Youth Haul Pass. PSTA-issued Youth Photo ID cards can be obtained free of charge at any PSTA Customer Service Center.
Spend less time at the bus stop and more time having fun
Thanks to PSTA’s New Real Time Bus Information system, riders can easily find out when the next bus will arrive at their stop. They can text, call or check on line to find out when the next bus will arrive, which means less waiting at the stop and more time enjoying other things. So before you head to the bus stop, check PSTA’s Real Time Bus Information site at RidePSTA.net.
First time riders are invited to take advantage of PSTA’s Google Trip Planner to easily plan their ride or they can get personalized riding instruction with PSTA’s free “Show Me” service by calling the PSTA InfoLine at (727) 540-1900.
