PSTA suspends Downtown Looper service
March 25, 2020 - The Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority will temporarily suspend the downtown St. Petersburg Looper service as well as the South Clearwater Beach Jolley Trolley route, beginning Monday, March 30. The suspensions are due to a lack of ridership brought on by business and hotel closures and last until until further notice, PSTA said. The Jolley Trolley North Clearwater Beach Route and North Coastal Route to Tarpon Springs will continue operating on a Saturday schedule that ends 10 p.m. All PSTA weekday services will begin to run on a Saturday schedule and all PSTA weekend service will be a Sunday schedule beginning on Sunday, March 29. The moves equates to a roughly 30 percent reduction in service and allow about 100 PSTA workers to stay home, the agency said.
