PSTA seeks input for North County Service | News
The Pinellas County Transit Authority is asking for the public's input to help develop new transit routes in northern Pinellas County.
According to a release from PSTA, the new services, called Regional Connector Routes, will feature 16-person mini-buses operating along regularly scheduled routes. Unlike standard PSTA bus routes, riders will be able to contact PSTA in advance and arrange to have the Regional Connector buses pick them up at their homes (up to three-quarters of a mile from the regular route). The buses will then return to their regular route where they will connect riders to various destinations including other PSTA, HART (Hillsborough Area Regional Transit Authority) and PCPT (Pasco County Public Transit) bus routes.
From now until June 30, residents can voice their opinions online via a short questionnaire. PSTA planners will use the information to develop routing, destinations and operating times that are most suited to meet residents' desires.
The new services are projected to be implemented in late October 2012.
