 What is the GreenLight Pinellas Plan?

  • On November 4, 2014, Pinellas County residents will vote on referendum to approve a County-wide plan to improve public transportation. It includes; enhancing and expanding bus service, building local passenger rail and planning for a future rail connection to Tampa. 
  • The GreenLight Plan will be financed with a 1% sales tax that takes effect on January 1, 2016 and the current PSTA ad valorem property tax will no longer be collected as of October 1, 2015. The 1 cent sales tax is limited to the first $5,000 spent and does not apply to groceries and medical products.
