How can I get to the St Pete Pride Parade?

An important note about getting around during St Pete Pride and other Pride events: June is a busy time of year here in St. Pete-Clearwater! When possible, it's an excellent choice (and a safe one if you plan to have a drink or two) to choose rideshares such as Uber and Lyft, or to ride convenient PSTA public transportation. Consider using ride shares or taking public transportation during Pride month. All routes will be running their normal schedules, see PSTA schedules and maps. Also review these PSTA rider tips to learn how to pay, how to ride, how to reach someone with questions and more. If you decide to drive, plan ahead for parking in St. Pete.

On the day of the St Pete Pride Parade, June 22, 2024, the SunRunner, Central Avenue Trolley and Bus Route 9 (which serves St. Pete High, where shuttles will be available) will be free.

You can park and ride for free from St. Petersburg High School at 2501 5th Ave North (buses will run 11 a.m. - 11 p.m.). In addition, this year, the Tampa Bay Rays will offer free parking in lots 5, 6 and 7 at Tropicana Field from 6 a.m. until midnight on June 22nd. This parking location offers easy access to the SunRunner at the 13th Street South Station. No overnight parking will be permitted.

The parking lots at the St. Pete Pier will be closed to vehicular traffic from 4:30 p.m. on parade day until after the parade is over so be aware that you won't be able to move your car during this time.
