HART Service Changes for August 19, 2013

Note: July and August has proven to be a very difficult time for me due to some personal matters, and I have had to suspend almost all of my blogging activities until September. I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.

Hillsborough Area Regional Transit (HART) is enacting schedule and/or routing changes to the following routes on Monday, August 19:

*Route 9 – 15th St: Two weekday evening departures will be added for each direction. The last northbound trip will leave the Marion Transit Center at 8:45pm and the last southbound trip will leave the University Area Transit Center at 9:00pm. Currently, weekday service ends at 7:45pm and 8:00pm respectively.

*Route 37 – Brandon/NetPark: One weekday evening departure will be added for each direction. The last eastbound trip will leave the NetPark Transfer Center at 8:05pm and the last westbound trip will leave the Westfield Brandon Mall at 9:05pm. Currently, weekday service ends at 7:05pm and 8:05pm respectively.

*Route 47LX – SouthShore/Downtown Limited Express: Running times for the first northbound trip will be adjusted in order to improve connectivity to other routes at the Marion Transit Center.

*Route 400 – MetroRapid North-South: To improve efficiency within the downtown Tampa area, HART will be re-aligning the downtown portion of the route to run along Morgan St, instead of the Marion St Transitway. Additionally, running times will be adjusted for both directions, and the Nebraska/Columbus and Nebraska/Fletcher timepoints will be removed from schedules, etc. to help improve efficiency. What’s that? HART has a schedule timetable up for MetroRapid North South! This was something that I addressed in my blog post from June. Let’s hope it will be a permanent fixture on the HART website!
