ST. PETERSBURG – May is National Bike Month and Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority wants to remind area cyclists that they can use PSTA to extend their cycling reach and enjoyment by incorporating transit in their cycling plans.
• For the casual rider: Take your bike to and from local stops and ride PSTA from there. Many stops have bike racks and others have places to secure bicycles nearby. Make sure to check before heading out on a trip.
• Bikes on buses: All of PSTA’s buses have bike racks, which hold two bikes each and allow riders to bring a bike along for the ride. Information on how to use the rack can be found on the Bikes on Buses page at www.psta.net.
• Ride to and/or from the Pinellas Trail: Many PSTA routes provide access to the Pinellas Trail. This gives cyclists the option of riding PSTA with their bike to a distance of their choosing along the trail for a one-way cycle home. This allows for a one-way trip and a way to take in a longer stretch of the trail that matches the endurance of the individual rider.
Use PSTA’s real time bus Information system, riders can easily find out when the next bus will arrive at their stop. They can text, call or check on line to find out when the next bus will arrive, which means less waiting at the stop and more time enjoying other things. Visit RidePSTA.net.
First-time riders are invited to take advantage of PSTA’s Google Trip Planner to plan their ride or they can get personalized riding instruction with PSTA’s free “Show Me” service by calling the PSTA InfoLine at 727-540-1900.
