Get around your city for less

November 11 / 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.

Today, we’re thrilled to announce that the Direct Connect program now includes 2 newly eligible locations: one at Grand Central Station and another at Seminole Blvd and Walsingham Rd. With Direct Connect now available at 26 PSTA locations daily, from 5am to midnight, it’s easier than ever before to affordably combine the convenience of Uber with public transportation.

We’re also updating pickup/dropoff points for the following locations:

  • US 19 and Whitney Road is moving to Largo Transit Center
  • Pasadena Ave and Majestic Way is moving to Pasadena Ave and Sun Island Drive
  • 18th Ave S and 16th St S is moving to 18th Ave S and MLK Jr St S

You can now get up to $5 off to and from all 26 PSTA Direct Connect locations*


Follow these steps to apply the promotion to your account:

  1. Open the Uber app, go to menu, and tap Payment.
  2. Scroll down to Promotions and tap Add Promo Code.
  3. Enter code UBER2PSTA and tap Add. (You need to enter the code one time only for the discount to be applied to all future eligible trips.)
  4. Request a ride when you’re ready.

How to request your discounted ride:

  • If you’re requesting a ride to a PSTA Direct Connect location, you must enter the exact PSTA location name (as is listed below) into 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 is made within 800 feet of a Direct Connect location), you’ll be able to view the upfront price with the discount already built in.
