Tampa Bay Regional Transit Master Plan
A seven-county collaborative group, in cooperation with the Florida Department of Transportation, the region’s Metropolitan Planning Organizations, individual transit agencies and the voting public, crafted this Transportation Master Plan for the growing Tampa Bay region.
In addition to leading the public outreach strategy for the project, on behalf of the Tampa Bay Area Regional Transportation District (TBARTA), CRL directed ongoing public opinion research, and actively engaged in evaluations of future governance, corridor prioritization and funding options, ensuring community validation along the way. Using creative techniques, such as telephone town hall meetings, CRL was able to engage over 40,000 residents and stakeholders in this planning process. The adopted Regional Transportation Master Plan received widespread public support and has since become the framework for integrated regional transit serving all parts of the Tampa Bay area.
