The SunRunner is a new Bus Rapid Transit service, looping customers from St. Pete Beach to downtown St. Petersburg, and anywhere in between. Cruising past traffic in its own lane, the SunRunner will get you where you need to go with no parking hassles. Takes about 35 minutes to get from the beach to downtown, and runs every 15 minutes. Cost is free for the first 6 months after launch (launched Oct. 21, 2022). After the launch period, fares will be the same as PSTA's regular service.

The trolley also has connections to regular bus service in Pinellas County.
