Today there will be a workshop held by PSTA and St. Pete Beach to discuss the proposed new Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project. The latest form of public transport would link downtown St. Pete to the county's beaches.

Not only will the BRT contribute to Tampa Bay’s environmentally conscious efforts of transportation, but PSTA also hopes to attract new riders and those commuting to the 50,000 jobs which are located within a half-mile of the project corridor. 

Today’s workshop begins at 3:30 p.m., in which locals can learn about the project and weigh in on the matter.  

The BRT Workshop is being held at St. Pete City Hall, located at 155 Corey Ave on St. Pete Beach. 

Head to the beaches, or head to work, this BRT project is in line to cut beach traffic and save you money.
