TBARTA's Bus Rapid Transit Project Gets a Name: Regional Rapid Transit
The Tampa Bay Area Regional Transit Authority's (TBARTA) proposed 41-mile bus rapid transit (BRT) project along I-275 connecting Hillsborough, Pasco, and Pinellas counties has a new logo, informational video, website, and a name: Regional Rapid Transit.
BRT is designed to provide fast, comfortable, and cost-effective transportation, and is increasingly being implemented around the world. TBARTA's proposed route would begin in downtown St. Petersburg and travel north on I-275 through downtown Tampa before ending in Wesley Chapel. The project is currently undergoing a Project Development and Environment (PD&E) study, made possible through a grant from the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT).
