HART planning new transit station
The Hillsborough Area Regional Transit agency is planning to construct a park-and-ride station to connect Brandon commuter to MacDill Air Force Base and downtown Tampa. According to the St. Petersburg Times, HART is interested in purchasing land just south of the Lee Roy Selmon Expressway that will accommodate up to 250 cars. Buses would stop to pick up passengers headed for Tampa and MacDill AFB. In addition to covered waiting areas with benches, the agency wants to include restrooms and an indoor snack bar or some other leased space. The plan is to have the new transit station open by March 2013.
The Hillsborough Area Regional Transit Authority was created in October of 1979. For more, visit www.gohart.org.
