PSTA to riders: ‘No face covering, no bus service’


PINELLAS COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) – Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority riders are required to wear a face covering.

PSTA tweeted that as of Monday, if riders do not wear a mask or face covering, they will be turned away or passed by due to safety concerns for employees and the community.

PSTA will also be handing out free bandanas, with a limit of one per person, at the following customer service center locations:

  • Grand Central Station
  • Park Street Terminal
  • Pinellas Park Transit Center
  • Williams Park

The CDC recommends wearing a face covering on transit and riders are asked to try to keep at least 6 feet away from others while both waiting at a bus station, as well as on a bus.

PSTA confirmed on June 10 that a driver tested positive for the virus. PTSA said it does not believe any passengers came in contact with the driver, who followed social distancing rules with passengers.
