Planning & Projects: Regional Rapid Transit

Regional Rapid Transit, or RRT, is the Project Development and Environment (PD&E) study that will advance the bus rapid transit (BRT) project connecting Downtown St. Petersburg, the Gateway area, Westshore, Downtown Tampa, the USF area, and Wesley Chapel. While we know the project will use I-275, this two-year study will determine the amount of the route that is dedicated (uses a lane separate from cars), where the stations will be, and how the vehicles will get to the stations. This study will also determine approximately how much it will cost and how it will be paid for.
