|“Right now riders have to make three transfers if they want to get from the Pier to Pass-a-Grille. On the new Central Avenue Trolley they’ll have the luxury of an easy, no transfer ride between the two popular destinations,” says PSTA CEO Brad Miller.
The new service will give residents and visitors alike a streamlined, convenient, one-seat ride from the St. Petersburg Pier to Pass-a-Grille Beach. The service is a combination of routes previously served by the Pier Trolley, the Looper Group’s Central Avenue Shuttle, PSTA’s Route 35 and the Suncoast Beach TrolleySM. The Central Avenue Trolley also features a new multi-zone fare system that offers free transport between the Pier and BayWalk. Rides between BayWalk and PSTA’s Grand Central Station will cost only 50¢ and normal PSTA fares will apply between Grand Central Station and Pass-a-Grille.
Riders can get more information on the Central Avenue Trolley by calling the PSTA InfoLine at (727) 540-1900.
