Pinellas County buses to start driving on the shoulder of I-275


The Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority's buses will start driving on the shoulder on Sundays. They're following the lead of several other large metro areas in the US with their bus-on-shoulder program, that allows buses to remain on-schedule by avoiding traffic.

Starting Sunday, June 13, buses will drive on the shoulder of I-275 when the flow of traffic dips below 35 MPH. There are signs on I-275 in St Pete alerting drivers to this law.
