PSTA is asking for public input to help develop several new transit routes in northern Pinellas County. The new services will be called Regional Connector Routes and will use 16-person mini-buses that operate on regularly scheduled routes.
What makes these routes unique is riders will be able to call PSTA in advance and arrange to be picked up off the route - up to 3/4 of a mile from the route's regular path. After your pickup, the bus returns to the scheduled route and will connect to various destinations including other PSTA, HART and PCPT bus routes.
To help PSTA make this service a success, the organization is inviting residents in northern Pinellas County to fill out a short survey so PSTA can learn more about the way you travel in and around the area - please click here to participate.
PSTA will use information gathered in the survey to develop the routing, destinations and operating times that are most suited for the desires of north county residents. The plan is to introduce these new services at the end of this year.
PSTA staff will also be making presentations to as many civic, community, business, educational and religious groups as possible to tell people more about the new services and to give them an opportunity fill out surveys in person. To schedule a presentation, please call the PSTA Community Relations Manager Bob Lasher at (727) 540-1874.
