With gas prices now topping $4 a gallon, the Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority is promoting the Summer Youth Haul Pass. For $35, kids 18 and younger have access to unlimited rides on PSTA and the Clearwater Jolley Trolley between Sunday and Aug. 31, excluding Routes 100X and 300X to Tampa. Middle and high school students will need a school, government or PSTA-issued photo ID to use the Haul Pass.
PSTA-issued Youth Photo ID cards can be obtained free at any PSTA customer service center. First-time riders are invited to visit PSTA.net and use PSTA's Google Trip Planner to plan a ride, or they can get personalized riding instruction with PSTA's free "Show Me" service by calling the PSTA InfoLine at (727) 540-1900.
