The Regional Transit Feasibility Plan is not just another study...
It's a vision for transit that began with a review of the more than 55 transportation plans and studies already completed by Tampa Bay area agencies over the past 30 years to determine where the strongest corridors are for possible transit options and what those projects would look like. The goal is simple: to improve transportation options in the Tampa Bay area.
The plan will build on decades of planning and bridge the gap between the regional vision for transit throughout the region and define the projects that are most competitive for federal funding. An evaluation process using clearly defined criteria will identify the top transit corridors in the region, and ultimately one “catalyst project” that could be implemented first, followed by other projects to move forward around the region.
