CLEARWATER, Fla. — If voters approve a 1% transit surtax
during this November’s election, Pinellas County Commissioners voted to approve an interlocal agreement with Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority
(PSTA) to govern its usage, reported TBNweekly
Approval of the 1% tax levy would provide a funding source for countywide transportation projects outlined in the Greenlight Pinellas plan, which include local passenger rail and regional connections, as well as an expanded bus system with bus rapid transit, increased frequency and extended hours.
