Williams Park Bus Shelter Dismantling

If you’ve been by Williams Park in Downtown St. Petersburg during the past week, you may have noticed something different.

That’s right, the various bus shelters that currently surround the park are slowly coming down as part of an effort by the Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority (PSTA) to discontinue using the park as a transfer hub. The park has been used as the city’s bus terminal since the 1950s, when PSTA’s predecessor agency, the St. Petersburg Municipal Transit System, was rising in popularity. The goal is to have virtually all PSTA bus routes out of Williams Park by Valentines Day, though there will be one or two routes that will still serve the park.

Stay tuned for further updates…
