PSTA offers free rides to the polls

in The Bay and the 'Burg/Top Headlines by

The Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority will provide free rides to polling places on Election Day Tuesday.

From 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., registered voters can get a free round trip ride on any PSTA bus or trolley by showing a valid Pinellas voter information card upon boarding.

“Our residents have a lot of important decisions to make on Election Day and finding a ride to the polls should not have to be one of them,” PSTA CEO Brad Miller said.

This is not the first year PSTA has offered free rides to voting residents and will not be the last, Miller said.

“We intend on providing free rides to voters on all future elections,” Miller said. “If we can help get more voters out to the polls and make their day a little easier, then we have served one of our many purposes.”

Riders are encouraged to prepare for their trip by identifying their polling location and which routes will take them there before traveling. PSTA bus operators will not have this information available. For help with trip planning, riders can call the PSTA InfoLine at 727-540-1900 or visit

For a complete list of polling locations, riders can visit the Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections website.
