Direct Connect Is Simple
This program lets you get a discounted ride to/from a PSTA Direct Connect location, so you can skip the walk to/from the PSTA bus while staying safe and comfortable. Direct Connect makes using the PSTA system easy and saves money. With 26 locations across the county, there is a convenient Direct Connect stop near the start and end of your bus ride. Choose from one of PSTA’s innovative partnerships with Uber, Lyft, United Taxi and Wheelchair Transport to get you where you need to be quickly and affordably. Direct Connect is available from 5:00 a.m. until 12:00 a.m., 7 days a week.
You can now access Direct Connect while in the Transit app!
Just look for the Direct Connect option after entering your destination in the Transit app. You’ll see both Uber and Lyft options for qualifying Direct Connect locations, and it will even automatically apply for voucher!
