Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Friday) | Listen to this entire show:
Good morning, welcome to Radioactivity. Iâ€™m Rob Lorei. This morning weâ€™ll be talking about transportation- especially public transportation including light rail. The Tampa Bay area is one of the last major metropolitan areas in the country to move forward with building a regional rail system. This coming Monday afternoon the Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority will be holding a workshop on area transportation choices and transit advocates plan to show upâ€¦..
The Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority has developed a plan that would greatly expand bus service, bike paths, and safe sidewalks for the entire county, as well as construct a light rail connecting Clearwater and St. Petersburg.
Here to talk about whatâ€™s going to happen Monday is Jeff Danner a member of the St. Petersburg City Council, heâ€™s also the chair of the PSTA. Phil Compton is with the Sierra Club and Tim Martin with Awake Pinellasâ€¦â€¦
