Posted on November 20, 2009

[IMAGE]PSTAShuttleFULL.jpg[/IMAGE]On Monday, the Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority (PSTA); the City of St. Petersburg, Fla.; and the Grand Central Business District unveiled the new Central Avenue Shuttle and rebranding of PSTA’s Grand Central Station.


The Central Avenue Shuttle is being operated by the Looper Group and links St. Petersburg’s Looper Trolley with PSTA’s Grand Central Station and Williams Park terminals, which serve 18 different bus routes.

 

The new service runs from the St. Petersburg Pier to 32nd Street along Central Avenue. The fare is only 25 cents one way or ten cents for seniors and citizens with disabilities, plus children five and younger ride free.


The shuttle is result of a growing partnership between PSTA, the City of St. Petersburg and local business leaders and their efforts to enhance transit options for residents and visitors.
