Tampa to Hold ‘Invision: Tampa Streetcar’ Brainstorming Session
This is the second such meeting for a proposal to modernize and extend the city’s streetcar system.
TAMPA – The city of Tampa will be holding the second of three public meetings to discuss “Invision: Tampa Streetcar,” a public transportation feasibility study for the extension and modernization of the current streetcar system.
The session is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Tuesday (April 4) at the Tampa Bay History Center, 801 Old Water St.
This will be the second brainstorm session for this project. This meeting will focus on technology and route alternatives for the Tampa streetcar system. At the first brainstorm session, held March 7, 125 attendees helped consultants further clarify the purpose of the project and discussed the needs of the downtown Tampa community for transportation options.
“The excellent attendance at the first brainstorm session, along with the over 800 responses we received to our first Streetcar survey, illustrates the importance of this project to Tampa residents,” Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn said. “This second public meeting will help us move closer to our goal of creating another viable transportation choice for Tampa.”
During this project, the planning team will look at a wide range of corridors and technologies, including the possible use of autonomous transit vehicles, and will recommend feasible alternatives and funding strategies. The first phase of “Invision: Tampa Streetcar” is expected to be complete in early summer. If the results of the feasibility analysis are positive, a second phase will be initiated to select a preferred alternative and refine plans and strategies.
