A new look at a USF circulator shuttle

HART line CirculatorWhat do USF students, Florida Hospital staffers, and Walgreens shoppers have in common? They’d prefer not to have to get in their cars when they have to cross Bruce B Downs Boulevard.

In March 2016, the MPO in cooperation with Hillsborough County Economic Development Department, Hillsborough Area Regional Transit, and Tampa Innovation Alliance, met to explore options for transit service within the University Area’s Innovation District. The proposed USF Area Circulator Shuttle would be the first of its kind to serve the University Area and, if completed, could seamlessly connect riders to USF, Busch Gardens, Moffitt Cancer Center, and the VA Hospital.

At the meeting, the MPO and its partners sought to assess demand for ridership in the area and determine the next steps.
Study recommendations will be completed in July 2016.
