Rays fans have a new resource this year when it comes to attending Rays games at Tropicana Field. PSTA’s new Central Avenue Trolley is an easy and affordable ride between downtown St. Petersburg and Pass-a-Grille.
The new service, which was implemented last October, drops fans off right at the Pinellas Trail next to Ferg’s Sports Bar on Central Avenue. From there it’s only a short walk to Tropicana Field.
“Last year it took numerous transfers to get from downtown St. Petersburg or Pass-a-Grille to the Trop; now it’s one trolley and NO transfers,” says PSTA Manager of Community Relations Bob Lasher.
The Central Avenue Trolley ends at about 11:00 p.m., so PSTA officials encourage riders to double check the Central Avenue Trolley schedule before riding to ensure that they don’t miss the last ride home or back to their cars.
“We’re sure the Rays will be happy to help out their transit riding fans by providing as many quick and easy victories as possible this year,” Lasher says.
PSTA has recently released a new video detailing the Central Avenue Trolley service, which can be found on the agency website or on the RidePSTA YouTube channel. For more information on how to ride PSTA, visit www.PSTA.net or call the PSTA InfoLine at 727-540-1900.
