Midtown Grocery Shuttle Pilot Program
City to Offer Grocery Shuttle from Tangerine Plaza to Nearest Walmart
FREE SERVICE STARTS SATURDAY, MAY 13
For residents who may not have transportation to the nearest grocery store, St. Petersburg will start offering free transportation from the Tangerine Plaza, where the Walmart Market closed in February, to the Central Plaza area Walmart Supercenter on Saturdays in May, June, July, and August. The shuttle service pilot program aims to meet a need for residents facing transportation challenges, and especially for those St. Pete residents who relied on the Walmart in Tangerine Plaza. City officials are offering this free service to our south St. Petersburg residents is an effort to address food insecurity while gauging demand for a future grocery store in Tangerine Plaza.
The 13-week Midtown Grocery Pilot Program is free and will operate between 10 am and 2 pm on Saturdays starting May 13. The mini-shuttle bus will be able to transport up to 25 passengers from Tangerine Plaza, located at 1794 22nd St. S. to the Walmart Supercenter, at 201 34th St. N., a distance of about 2.5 miles.
