Bus Pass Helps Riders to See the Light
Release Date: 11/25/15
St. Petersburg, Fla. – Pinellas County bus riders can see this year’s holiday lights display in multiple dimensions—three-dimensions, to be exact.
The Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority (PSTA) and the Florida Botanical Gardens Foundation are partnering to encourage guests to ride the bus to this year’s Holiday Lights in the Gardens display by offering a free pair of 3-D glasses to guests who show their PSTA bus pass.
“Our gardens are part of a vast ecosystem and a big part of keeping that system in balance is being aware of our carbon footprint,” said Terry Berube, President of the Florida Botanical Gardens Foundation. “Riding public transportation is one of the most effective actions individuals can take to conserve energy.”
To receive a free pair of 3-D glasses, guests must present a current PSTA bus pass to the holiday gift cart attendant located at McKay Creek Plaza. Glasses are limited to one per guest and will also be available for purchase for $2 each.
The promotion will go on throughout the entirety of the holiday lights display, Nov. 27 through Dec. 31, from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. A donation of $4 per person, 13 years and older, is suggested to enter the gardens.
Riders can take PSTA Route 59 to the Florida Botanical Gardens, located at 12520 Ulmerton Road in Largo.
