PSTA extends service for self-driving shuttle

February 24, 2021 - The board of directors of the Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority agreed to extend service for its autonomous vehicles in St. Petersburg. The PSTA board voted to allow the fare-free, all-electric shuttle to continue operations through March 28. It had been scheduled to end next week. The St. Petersburg City Council is expected to take up its own vote on the extension on March 4. Since launching in November, the shuttle has been "a great success," said Brad Miller, PSTA CEO. The shuttle, dubbed AVA for Autonomous Vehicle Advantage, operates along Bayshore Drive Wednesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
