The Tampa Bay Area Regional Transit Authority (TBARTA) has awarded a USD5 million contract to WSP USA to conduct a Project Development and Environment (PD&E) study for the upcoming 66-km (41-mile)-long bus rapid transit (BRT) line. WSP will coordinate with stakeholders to develop route design alternatives, study the environmental impact of the project, and develop an application for a Capital Investment Grant (CIG) from the Federal Transit Administration (FTA).

 

The BRT line will connect Hillsborough, Pasco, and Pinellas counties. It will run from downtown St. Petersburg, along I-275 through Tampa, to Wesley Chapel.
