Transportation

Park Once Shuttle Program

The Park Once shuttle pilot program has ended.

Visitors to downtown are encouraged to use the Looper Trolley system, which operates until midnight on Friday and Saturday nights, with approximately every 20 minutes between stops. The Looper offers a Free Fare zone which visitors may use to connect with the city’s major museums, attractions, Beach Drive restaurants and retail district.  Stops are located near Fifth Ave. NE/the Renaissance Vinoy; the Birchwood; Sundial/Muvico; the Museum of Fine Arts; the Beach Drive Parking lot; and the St. Petersburg Chamber of Commerce/Sundial.

Outside the Free Fare Zone, visitors may ride The Looper for only .50. 

Complete Streets

Complete Streets create better transportation environments for all ages and physical and economic abilities to safely and comfortably move around the city. Complete streets are flexible and take into account their surrounding land use regulations and related transportation network connections. Establishing Complete Streets will enable the City of St. Petersburg to further achieve its status as a city of opportunity where the sun shines on all who come to live, work and play.

Tampa Bay Express

Tampa Bay Express is a system of express toll lanes that will be built as an addition to existing interstate routes. These new lanes give drivers a choice of paying a toll in order to enjoy a better commute and help relieve overall traffic congestion. In St. Petersburg, the proposed express lanes begin at Gandy Boulevard and proceed north towards Hillsborough County.  Tampa Bay Express will be constructed when funding becomes available.

As part of the Tampa Bay Express initiative, the Express Bus in Tampa Bay Express Lanes Study evaluated potential premium express bus service operating within proposed tolled interstate express lanes. This study also looked at the feasibility of providing regional transit service to beaches, business districts, and multimodal centers in Hillsborough, Pinellas, and Pasco Counties. In St. Petersburg, the proposed express bus service begins in downtown St. Petersburg and proceeds north towards Hillsborough County.

Gateway Express Project

 
   
The Gateway Express project is a planned expressway that aims to improve mobility and transportation efficiency in mid-Pinellas County, including areas north of St. Petersburg. The project consists of two branches: an elevated highway above 118th Street North between Interstate (I-275) and US Hwy 19 (US 19) and a raised highway in the median of Roosevelt (SR 686) from 118th Street to the Bayside Bridge. The project funding was recently approved and is anticipate to start construction in 2017.
