ABC Action News- Tampa Bay Transit Authority Working on Plan for Freeway-Based Bus Service Along I-275
TAMPA, Fla. (ABC Action News) — Tampa Bay has an opportunity to learn more and comment on TBARTA’s plan to connect Pinellas, Hillsborough and Pasco counties along I-275 with freeway-based bus rapid transit service.
Three community workshops are scheduled, one for each of the counties RRT will serve.
“Right now, we’re conducting a project development and environmental study, and public input is an important part of the decisions we’re making,” said David Green, TBARTA Executive Director. “These workshops are not just to educate the public, they’re also the chance for people to speak out and be heard so we can prioritize their needs into the plans. We encourage anyone interested in the future of regional transit in Tampa Bay to come see us at one of these workshops.”
