Traffic planning: the Tampa way
July 31, 2006
Tampa Mayor Pam Iorio is proposing a downtown bus system, called downtown circulators, to move people from home to work or to dinner and a movie. She wants the buses in place by 2010.
The Tampa area Metropolitan Planning Organization is footing the bill for the research of circulators at the request of the Hillsborough Area Regional Transit Authority and the Tampa Downtown Partnership.
Pensacola’s mayor, our regional transportation authority, ECAT and the DIB need to follow Tampa’s example.
The price of gas isn’t getting any cheaper.
