St. Petersburg, Fla. – The Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority (PSTA) is proud to be the Official Transportation Provider of Florida’s largest LGBT Pride event – St. Pete Pride.
As hundreds of thousands of locals and tourists flood to St. Petersburg’s waterfront for the weekend, PSTA is gearing up to handle the masses.
Eventgoers will have the option of parking at a free Park-N-Ride on Saturday, June 24, courtesy of PSTA. The Park-N-Ride will operate service from noon to midnight between the parking lot located at St. Petersburg High, 2501 Fifth Ave. N, and the downtown waterfront.
Riders boarding at any stop along PSTA’s Route 5 between the Park-N-Ride pick-up and drop-off locations will also ride free.
This year, Pride attendees will also have the option of riding PSTA’s Central Avenue Trolley (CAT) into the early morning hours. The CAT will be extending its hours until 2:30 a.m. to accommodate for late-night festivities throughout downtown. Riders can buy a single ride on the CAT for $2.25 or an all-night pass for $5 (cash only, exact change required).
PSTA’s fully-wrapped Pride bus, which will be making its debut at the parade Saturday night, will double as a cooling station at the St. Pete Pride Festival on Sunday, June 25.
