Fla.’s Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority (PSTA) completed the installation of bus driver safety shields. A total of 202 buses are now equipped with protective barriers.

“I am thankful for the hard work so many people did in order to complete this critical investment to keep both our drivers and riders in our care safe,” said Brad Miller, CEO of PSTA. “During these difficult times, these shields also provide another layer of security for our operators, in which we are also grateful for.”

In 2019, PSTA’s board unanimously voted to approve $1.2 million in funding for the project. The barriers are paid for by PSTA’s capital reserve fund. PSTA was one of the first agencies in the Tampa Bay region to install safety barriers.
