Express Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) service in St. Petersburg’s Central Avenue corridor from downtown St. Petersburg to the Gulf beaches has some existing funding identified, and is the most “shovel-ready” project of the six potential corridors recommended in past studies, making it an ideal BRT “pilot project” for Pinellas County.

The goals of the Central Avenue BRT project are to develop and implement successful BRT service that

  • Supports local revitalization and economic development plans;
  • Supports tourism with a fast, convenient transportation alternative between two of Pinellas’ major tourist centers;
  • Attracts new ridership;
  • Supports the unique character of the area; and
  • Provides service in a cost-effective manner.

The Central Ave BRT will complement local service provided by the existing, and highly successful Central Avenue Trolley by providing expedited, limited stop travel from downtown St. Petersburg to the beaches, seven days a week on 1st Ave N (westbound) and 1st Ave S (eastbound).

The trolley route will continue to serve numerous destinations along the corridor, while the proposed BRT will serve only major stops in the corridor, cutting the current transit travel time from St. Petersburg to the beaches by more than a third.

This pilot BRT route will be the first of what may ultimately be a future network of rapid transit services connecting Clearwater Beach, Tampa International Airport, and other key tourist destinations and
economic centers.
