westshore area to crystal river / inverness transit corridor evaluation

The Westshore Area to Crystal River/Inverness Transit Corridor Evaluation will look at the extension of premium transit service from the Westshore area in Tampa, along the Veterans Expressway/Suncoast Parkway northward, connecting Hillsborough, Pasco, Hernando and Citrus counties.

The Master Plan identified that this corridor would use some form of premium bus service - possibly Bus Rapid Transit (BRT), express bus in managed lanes, express bus in mixed traffic, or some combination. The transit service will branch off the Suncoast Parkway and will extend to park-and-ride locations within the northern counties.

The study focused on connecting the northern counties to employment centers, as well as station and development opportunities along the route(s). Major products include transit operations studies and station area location analysis/development opportunities.
