PSTA is partnering with the Pinellas County Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) and the City of St. Petersburg to develop a long-range plan to make public transit in St. Petersburg even more convenient. The city will hold a public meeting to tell you about proposed sites for a new, modern, efficient, intermodal transit transfer center which would replace the current Williams Park location. Comments from the public are welcome.

As Marilyn Olsen, president of the Downtown Neighborhood Association writes, “One of the first and ongoing concerns which Friends of Williams Park identified as necessary to the long term reestablishment of Williams Park as an exciting urban town square was to eliminate bus waiting from the perimeter. This is our opportunity to show our support. The details of the meeting are:

Public Information Meeting
Tuesday, 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. (presentation at 6:00 p.m.)
at Sunshine Center, 330 – 5th St N, St. Petersburg
