The redesign is a step-by-step approach to examining the entire Pinellas bus system.

PINELLAS COUNTY – The Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority (PSTA) has set dates for public workshops to discuss the first phase of a proposed service redesign.

The PSTA will focus on a customer-oriented service redesign to gain financial sustainability through year 2020. The redesign is a step-by-step approach at examining the entire PSTA system under the lens of the new Path Forward plan and current fiscal constraints. Broken up into 10 phases and spanning over the course of three years, each phase will undergo a six-step process that begins with a route performance evaluation and ends with a public and board-endorsed action plan.

Phase one will focus on the lowest performing routes in the system: 1, 18, 30, 58, 444, and East Lake Connector. If approved by the PSTA board, this first phase will save a projected $930,000 as planned in the FY 2016 budget.

Phase one is the only phase scheduled for 2015.

The hearings:

  • 10 a.m. to noon, Monday (Aug. 17), Pinellas Park Library, 7770 52nd St. N.
  • 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., Tuesday (Aug. 18), PSTA Administrative Building, 3201 Scherer Drive, Pinellas Park.
  • 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., Thursday (Aug. 20), Gladden Park Recreation Center, 3901 30th Ave. N, St. Petersburg
