July 2018 – Learn about the different transit initiatives underway, and how they are working together to build a Regional Transit Vision for Tampa Bay at the Regional Transit Forum on Friday, July 20 from 1pm to 7pm at Tampa Airport Marriott. Park in Tampa International Airport’s Short Term Garage, and bring your parking ticket into the event to be validated. Better yet, take transit to the Regional Transit Forum! Grab your ride on PSTA’s Route 300X and HART’s Routes 30, 32, 35, 60LX and 275LX. The Marriott is accessible from the Airport on the third floor between the red elevators.
The event agenda includes networking and an open house, transit discussions featuring a keynote address by Senator Bill Galvano, plus you can sign up for tours of the Airport’s new Rental Car Center, transit curb, and an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the SkyConnect maintenance facility. Look for the Hillsborough, Pinellas, and Pasco Metropolitan Planning Organizations at the Forum. We’ll be previewing the It’s TIME Tampa Bay online survey that will take flight July 31 – September 30 at: itstimetampabay.org
In the survey, we’re seeking your thoughts on three very different transportation and growth scenarios. By completing the survey and leaving your email address, you’ll be eligible for drawings for pairs of tickets to a Bucs or Lightning game! Survey results will help the three MPOs create the very first tri-county Long-Range Transportation Plan. We’re also making the survey available through presentations to civic and business organizations, groups, clubs, and associations and have scheduled more than 50 groups throughout Hillsborough County. If you would like to add your group, please contact Lisa Silva at firstname.lastname@example.org or 813.273.3774 x329.
