St. Petersburg, Florida -- The City of St. Pete has partnered with St. Petersburg Trolley tohelp provide an alternative to overflowing street parking at Beach Drive.

Beginning Friday, Feb. 28, the Dolphin parking lot along the Pier approach will be designated as Beach Drive overflow parking. Motorists can park in the lot for a $3 flat fee ($5 during special events).

The City's trolley system is also extending its Free Fare Zone for visitors who use this Dolphin parking lot so they can enjoy free service from the downtown Looper during regular service hours. Other stops in the zone include thePelican trolley station (both along the approach to The Pier), the Renaissance Vinoy Resort, The Birchwood/Moon Under Water, Museum of Fine Arts/Parkshore Grill, Sundial/Muvico and the Chamber Visitor Center.

If passengers chose to ride outside the designated Free Fare Zone they would have to pay 50 cents.For more information, please click here, or visit our website
