The bus schedule for Route 54 has been adjusted, allowing it to now include Pasco-Hernando State College’s Porter Campus at Wiregrass Ranch.
Pasco County Public Transportation started offering the bus service Sept. 29, and will come to the campus every two hours beginning at 8:07 a.m., and ending at 6:07 p.m.
Students are eligible for discount fares and passes with a valid PCPT reduced fare card, and can use a bus shelter and stop on the north side of the main facility, next to the parking garage.
“This is a wonderful addition” to the system, said PCPT director Mike Carroll, in a release. “I encourage students who use the campus to consider using the bus service as their main way to commute to school. Students able to catch the bus will save money on gas and transportation costs.”
Cross County Route 54 also makes stops at The Shops at Wiregrass, The Grove, Zephyrhills, and Medical Center of Trinity.
PCPT also operates the county’s para-transit services for those unable to access services because of a verifiable disability, environmental barrier, or distance from a route.
Those who would like more information about PCPT can call (813) 235-6073.
