Universal Photo ID
PSTA Photo ID Cards are free and can be obtained at any of our Customer Service Centers. PSTA's Universal Photo ID card can also be used on HART buses. The cards feature a large block letter in the upper right-hand corner that specifies different designations for discount fares.
The same eligibility documentation can be presented at the Customer Service Center for a Flamingo Fares Card which is loaded with your discount fare. By using Flamingo Fares, you will automatically get the best fare. You can reload your card online or at any Customer Service Center. As a customer eligible for reduced fares, you will never pay more than $1.10 per ride, $2.50 per day, or $35 per calendar month when using Flamingo Fares!

To obtain a PSTA-Issued Adult Student Photo ID, present proof of current enrollment in a Pinellas County college/university at a PSTA Customer Service Center.
The Bus Operator will not accept any alternate ID types to purchase Reduced Cash Fares.

Senior Citizens 65 years of age or older can also show, as proof, their original Medicare or Medicaid card.
