Getting Around
By Keith
January 5, 2017


You will nd plenty of public parking around the beaches for a small
fee. Find your spot, remember
your number and look for a parking meter pay station — it’s a silver box that accepts credits cards, paper money and coins.


The sun is out, the sand is hot and you’re ready to have some fun in the sun. Look for the public beach access signs all around, and you’ll be on your way.



You will start to
see distinctive
Mile Marker
signs along
the main roads
that parallel the
beach. These are
designed to help
you estimate the
distances and nd
your way from one
point to another.
They start at Mile
Marker 0 in Pass-a-Grille and go to Mile Marker 25 on the north end of Clearwater Beach.



By dialing 511, Tampa Bay travelers in Hillsborough, Pasco, Polk, Pinellas, Manatee and Hernando counties, along with Sarasota, can access free, 24-hour traf c and road-condition updates on select road segments. Travelers can also access the same information at 511.com.


Suncoast Beach Trolley

Hop on the Suncoast Beach Trolley, and explore the unique beach communities from downtown Clearwater to Pass-a-Grille. Shop the beach stores on Corey Avenue, take in the sights at John’s Pass Village or watch the sun set into the horizon.

Look for special trolley bus stop signs located frequently along the route. In addition to the services along Gulf Boulevard, connector routes run between the coast and downtown St. Petersburg.

Hours of Operation

The Suncoast Beach Trolley runs every 20 to 30 minutes from 5:05 a.m. to 10:10 p.m., Monday through Sunday, in- cluding holidays, with service until midnight on Friday and Saturday.

Central Avenue Trolley

On the Central Avenue Trolley (CAT), you have the luxury
of an easy, no-transfer ride between two popular destina- tions — St. Petersburg and Pass-a-Grille Beach. This trolley features a new multi- zone fare system that offers free transport between The Pier and the Sundial.
