It’s divided the mayors. What do you think? St. Pete’s mayor loves the idea of a bus that’ll take you from downtown St. Pete to the beach. But St. Pete Beach’s mayor doesn’t like it. Riders will pay about $5 and Bay News 9 says it’s expected to be up and running by 2021.
I’m all in favor of less traffic. I’ve gotta think this bus route would mean fewer Uber cars bringing tourists back and forth. What do you think? Tweet your thoughts at @Q105Geno and I’ll include them below.
It is insane to me that St. Pete beach council members have an issue with a bus route from downtown St. Pete to the beach bc “fear of safety”, hundreds if not thousands of people are already driving to the beach every single day. A bus route would help with traffic congestion (1)— in today’s news... (@giinapatricia) June 12, 2019
LOL PSTA has not increased route 7's once an hour bus service in 35 years but now it wants to cut a 55 minute ride at St Pete Beach to 35 minutes and the city won't approve. What goes around comes around.— John Royse (@digital843) June 13, 2019
