Transit coming to the Northwest

HART covered bus stationIn March of this year, the MPO and HART kicked off a new study to evaluate transit service options in northwestern Hillsborough County. The Northwest Hillsborough Transit Study will identify the feasibility of transit options in the area that will make accessing all of the great restaurants, parks, and shopping in that part of the county possible for more people.

An existing plan proposes to expand local, express, MetroRapid, and flex services in the area. The study will also explore potential sites for regional park’n’ride lots and assess demand for paratransit services. The study area will include the areas of Westchase, Citrus Park, Northdale, Keystone, and Odessa.
