Body

SUMMARY: 

The purpose of this item is to request approval of $18,465 to fund the Jolley Trolley Coastal Route operated by PSTA in FY 21/22. The Downtown Development Board adopted a multi-year agreement with PSTA on December 21, 2018 to support the operating costs of providing transit services along the coast of Pinellas County. The current agreement includes a 5% annual escalation of base service costs and will end in September 2022. Approval of this item will authorize staff to issue a grant payment in accordance with the executed agreement.

The Jolley Trolley Coast Route connects riders to Downtown Clearwater and Clearwater Beach along with other Pinellas destinations. This service meets downtown revitalization goals by providing additional low-cost transportation choices to connect tourists and Pinellas County residents to downtown. Attached to this item are the executed amendment and an update on PSTA’s operations over the past year. 

 

APPROPRIATION CODE AND AMOUNT:

Funds for this grant are available in the Jolley Trolley Downtown Loop line item in the Business Assistance category of the budget (1829411-558700) for the DDB FY 21/22 Annual Budget
