I have some wonderful news everyone! For those of you residing in Hillsborough County, Florida, the Hillsborough County Commission voted unanimously to continue discussions regarding public transit improvements!
The move allows county officials to explore various ways to improve the county’s infrastructure; including enhanced bus service and possibly a light rail line. In recent weeks, there has been immense pressure on county officials to restart talks regarding public transit improvements, especially with Pinellas County gearing up for a 2014 sales tax referendum. Many transit supporters see the Pinellas move as a chance to get Hillsborough on board and make 2014 as a regional vote for transit improvements.
Please stay tuned for further updates!
