County provides $8 million for PSTA terminal
November 16, 2022 - The Pinellas County Board of County Commissioners allocated $8 million Tuesday to help the Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority (PSTA) build its long-planned downtown Clearwater transit center. Officials expect construction to begin next year. According to a release, PSTA lowered its original ask of $15 million after securing additional funding. The project’s cost increased from $34 million to nearly $45 million, and the county money - not available until PSTA exhausts other funding - will help close that gap.
