ST. PETE BEACH -- The Tampa Bay Beaches Chamber of Commerce will begin selling senior citizen bus passes at two of its locations.
Seniors 65 and older are required to show their Medicare cards at the time of purchase. The passes may be purchased at the St. Pete Beach office, 6990 Gulf Blvd., from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Mondays and Tuesdays; and at the Madeira Beach office, 501 150th St., between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Thursdays.
This program is designed to help senior citizens get PSTA passes at a convenient source. The passes are $2.50 each.
Applicants will have their photos taken. Riders will use the laminated photo ID instead of a Medicare card each time they board a bus or trolley.
