PSTA WILL BEGIN SUSPENDING SERVICE TODAY STARTING AT 12 P.M.
St. Petersburg, Fla - In response to Hurricane Eta, the Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority will begin suspending service starting today, November 11th, at 12 p.m. PSTA will resume service as soon as it is deemed safe after the storm passes.
All PSTA terminals, including Park Street, Grand Central Station, and Pinellas Park will be closed as well. PSTA urges all passengers who rely on bus service to get to their destinations do so before the suspension of service.
PSTA will update the local media about the status of service, so tune into your TV and radio stations for the most up-to-date information. Riders can also find the latest information on PSTA bus service by calling the InfoLine at 727-540-1900 or by visiting our Facebook and Twitter feeds at Ride PSTA.
If a hurricane evacuation were to occur, PSTA will work with Pinellas County Emergency Management to provide free bus transportation to designated shelters. Residents can view a list of shelters and routes on the Pinellas County website: www.pinellascounty.org/emergency/shelters.htm
Citizens who need transportation to a “special needs” shelter must pre-register with Pinellas County Emergency Management by calling 727-464-3800. Call your nearest fire department or home healthcare provider or submit a form online.
