New Largo Transit Center Opens Sunday, May 1st

The new PSTA Largo Transit Center will formally open to customers on Sunday, May 1, 2016. You can view the boarding chart (made by yours truly) on my PSTA information page:


1,000 is the number of steps it takes to get from the nearest bus stop at US 19 and Roosevelt Boulevard to the Walmart Supercenter located on the corner—rain or shine.

PSTA thought they could do better, so they changed it to seven.

On the east side of Walmart at US 19 and Roosevelt, the new Largo Transit Center is set to open to riders on Sunday, May 1st. Located in the heart of Pinellas County, Largo Transit Center is served by some of PSTA’s highest ridership routes, namely Routes 19, 52, and 79.

Not only will riders and employees of nearby businesses now have a convenient, comfortable place to make transfers, they will also be the first to enjoy PSTA’s new bus shelter design.

SCAT April 2016 Service Changes

SCAT April 2016 Service Changes 1

These changes took effect on 4/16/16.

Sarasota County Area Transit (SCAT) enacted service changes on Friday, April 16, 2016. These changes affect numerous routes throughout Sarasota County, including all three express routes.

Probably the biggest change is the merger of Routes 20, 28, and 29 in North Port. These circulator routes were notorious for duplication of service and it makes much more sense to have only one circulator in the area as opposed to three. Major points of interest will be served by the new Route 28, and Route 9 was extended over to the North Port City Hall via Cocoplum, Sumter Blvd, and Price Blvd.

Routes 80X, 90X, and 100X all saw scheduling changes to better serve customers who are needing to get to major employment centers at specific times.

Route 10 will have a seasonal adjustment; bus will NOT travel east of the Westfield Southgate Mall during the late spring and summer months. Please view the revised schedule for details.

Further details about the above changes, as well as changes to other routes, can be viewed in the flyer below. I will be updating my SCAT Transit Routes page to reflect these changes.
