WUSF - Study Will Determine Fate Of I-275 Bus Transit Project
For years, planners have discussed building a bus rapid transit line linking St. Petersburg, Tampa, and Wesley Chapel. A study underway right now will determine that project’s future.
The Tampa Bay Area Regional Transit Authority voted earlier this year to move ahead with an environmental study of the project. It will take about three years to complete.
“If there are periods throughout the 28 months where we might need to slow down and engage a little bit more with the public and have more dialogue, then we certainly have the opportunity to do that," said David Green, TBARTA's Executive Director.
