On September 29, 2017, the team behind the Regional Transit Feasibility Plan in Tampa Bay recommended the top transportation projects designed to be competitive catalysts for federal and state funding. The recommendations for future projects were the result of technical analysis, coupled with public input that was provided at a series of community workshops.

A draft implementation plan is scheduled to be completed in January, 2018. Then, after an eight-month period that focuses heavily on getting more feedback from the public, the final implementation plan will be completed by October, 2018 with a proposed ”catalyst” project(s), completing a two-year planning process that began in Fall, 2016. The project team will be coordinating numerous opportunities for the public to provide their comments and suggestions in the coming months.

“Thank you to everyone who attended one of our community workshops and helped us identify which connections are most important for this region,” said Katharine Eagan, Chief Executive Officer of HART, the agency administering the plan. “We’d still like to hear from others in the community, which is why the public comment period will continue uninterrupted through October 2018.”
