A new PSTA Direct Connect experience

March 23, 2018 / Tampa Bay

In February 2016, Uber partnered with the Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority (PSTA) to create a “first mile, last mile” solution to provide reduced-cost rides to and from designated Direct Connect locations.

Now, we’re thrilled to announce an enhanced Direct Connect program that will include 24 eligible Direct Connect locations and will be in operation daily, from 6am – 11pm. This makes it easier than ever to affordably combine the convenience of Uber with public transportation.

How to request your discounted ride

  • If you’re requesting a ride to a PSTA Direct Connect location, you must enter the PSTA location name as listed below in the “Where To?” field for the discount to be applied.
  • If you’re requesting a ride from a PSTA Direct Connect location, ensure that your “Current Location” in the app is set to the exact name of the PSTA location you’re requesting from. This will ensure that the discount applies correctly.
  • Tap the PSTA discounted price and request your ride.
  • If the ride is eligible (pickup or dropoff made within 800 feet of a Direct Connect location), you’ll be able to view the upfront price with the discount already built in.
