On November 4, 2014, Pinellas County voters will be asked to approve a one percent increase in the county2’s sales tax to overhaul the area’s public transportation system. The Greenlight Pinellas Plan will reduce the median St. Petersburg homeowner’s property taxes by 6%. The plan’s substantially expanded public transit services will be funded by a 1% sales tax, paid in part by non-residents while eliminating the current public transit property tax paid only by property owners.

 The Greenlight Pinellas Plan was developed as a partnership between PSTA, local governments, other transportation agencies, and the community. More than 90,000 citizens, business and community leaders, and other stakeholders contributed to the development of the plan.

 The plan includes a network of rapid bus services, more frequent local routes, more evening and weekend service, improved trolley services, new regional express routes, improved connector service, and passenger rail. If approved, Greenlight Pinellas will provide new and expanded services for the citizens of St. Petersburg.www.stpete.org/GreenlightPinellas.
