PSTA Opens Transit Center

The Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority (PSTA), St. Petersburg, FL, joined representatives of the city of Pinellas Park Jan. 13 at ceremonies to open the agency’s new Pinellas Park Transit Center, the agency’s first new customer service center in 13 years.

“This is a win-win and a perfect example of intergovernmental partnership between PSTA and the city of ­Pinellas Park,” said PSTA Board Chair and Clearwater City Council Member Bill Jonson. The facility is a public-private partnership, he added, with land provided by Boulder Venture South.

The new transit center, PSTA’s first mid-county customer service facility, will help the agency meet the demand for additional service centers and ticket outlets as transit ridership continues at record-setting levels.

“We have to maintain our commitment to our customers, and that’s what this facility is all about,” says PSTA CEO Brad Miller. Miller, who is a member of the APTA Board of Directors and chairs the Bus and Paratransit CEOs Committee, says the state-of-the-art facility features many new amenities and resources for PSTA’s third busiest transfer location, including a two-station customer service booth, security cameras, an ATM, safer access to shopping, improved bus lanes, a raised traffic table for safer pedestrian crossing and public restrooms.
