St. Petersburg, Fla. – The largest LGBT Pride parade in Florida kicks off Saturday night in Downtown St. Petersburg, and the Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority (PSTA) is going to get you there.
PSTA buses will be running frequently along 1st Avenues North and South – parallel to the events – making it easy to leave your car at home or in an outlying parking spot while PSTA chauffeurs you to and from the celebrations.
“Making history” is the theme for the 13th annual St. Pete Pride festival, and PSTA will be making a little history of its own. As part of the celebrations, PSTA staff will ride a full-sized bus covered in lights down Central Avenue as part of the only LGBT nighttime parade.
PSTA has several routes that will be serving the expected 200,000 people in the Grand Central District Saturday night, such as the Central Avenue Trolley, Routes 7, 18, 20 and 52. Several routes will also be detoured to accommodate for the parade and the Pride Street Festival on Sunday.
Those interested in riding the bus can call our InfoLine at (727) 540-1900 and speak with a customer service representative, and/or find more information on detoured routes on the PSTA Rider Alert webpage.
