You can now get rides to/from PSTA bus routes for as little as $1.00!
PSTA's new county-wide service, DirectConnect, allows riders to get Uber, United Taxi or Wheelchair Transport rides to and from designated bus stops for as little as one dollar each way. The program is designed to make riding PSTA easier by offering affordable rides to and from certain stops throughout the county. PSTA will subsidize the DirectConnect rides up to $5, so some riders will pay about a dollar for their ride to/from the designated stop, while others, who are traveling farther, will pay a little more. Learn more at http://www.psta.net/directconnect/index.php.
