Pinellas Technical College (PTC) and the Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority (PSTA) announced that starting Jan. 1, 2016 any PTC student or staff member are able to show their campus ID and ride a PSTA bus for free.  


The new program could benefit more than three thousand PTC students attending classes in St. Petersburg and Clearwater. To celebrate the partnership, district and school administrators, school board members, community leaders, students and staff gathered at a press conference at the Pinellas Technical College, Clearwater campus, on January 11th.  


 “I want to thank our valued partner PSTA for making this possible,” said Mark Hunt, executive director of career technical and adult education for Pinellas County Schools. “Access to transportation is essential to our students who are working hard to graduate and embark on successful careers.”
