Transportation Management Area Leadership Group sets Top 5

TMA Leadership GroupThe Tampa Bay Transportation Management Area (TMA) Leadership Group, with members of the MPO Boards of Hillsborough, Pinellas, and Pasco Counties, agreed on their top 5 transportation projects for the year. This advisory group was formed to draw attention to the cross-border transportation needs of the tri-county area.

At the TMA September 2nd meeting at PSTA, the Leadership Group added a new priority to the list this year: the development of Regional Express Bus services in the Gandy/Selmon corridor, the Veteran’s/Suncoast corridor, and between Tampa International Airport and Clearwater Beach.

Previous TMA priorities remaining on the list are the: Tampa Bay Express toll lanes project; Westshore Multimodal Center with transit connections to Downtown Tampa and the Airport; passenger service on two existing CSX-owned rail corridors; and deployment of a seamless farebox system among the region’s bus companies. The group’s priorities are reflected and incorporated in the priorities adopted by each member MPO. For more information on the September meeting, please view the full agenda packet and results.
