When: From March 30 – April 3, 2015 (during Pinellas County School’s “Spring Break”).

Why:  To promote transit use and help ease the county’s annual “Spring Break” traffic jams

For many people “Spring Break” is a magical time of year when Floridians and tourists alike enjoy picture perfect weather, award-winning beaches, spring training and tourist dollars streaming into the local economy. For others, especially our neighbors along the gulf beaches, “Spring Break” means something very different:  Traffic.

In order to help reduce that traffic congestion (and the demand for “Mom’s Taxi Service”) PSTA will be holding a special promotion encouraging transit use by offering a limited number of free, all-day bus passes. Those passes, called Daily Unlimited GO CARDS will be made available to “Spring Breakers” who follow PSTA on social media. Here’s how it will work: From Monday March 30, 2015 through Friday April 3, 2015, PSTA’s Social Media Coordinator, Alissa Kostyk, will be at the locations and times listed below. Before she heads out, Alissa will post on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram (@RidePSTA) details about where people can find her and win a free bus pass. (Hint: Alissa will be holding a poster-sized GO CARD.)   Cards will be awarded to the first five people who find her and request one. The cards provide unlimited travel on PSTA (excluding the 100X & 300X routes to Tampa) for an entire day and can be used the day they are won or on any single day in the future. Winners will also be featured on PSTA’s social media.
