Brian Willis of Connect Tampa Bay on Hillsborough County’s Transit needs


Local Tampa-based attorney is one of the founding members of Connect Tampa Bay, a Hillsborough County backed group that is pushing for more transit options throughout the Tampa Bay area. On the program Brian talked about the referendums in both Pinellas and Polk Counties this fall that would increase bus service and in the case of Pinellas, create a light-rail network.

He’s a critic of some of the plans already announced by the Hillsborough Transportation Economic Development group, saying there’s too much emphasis on roads and not transit.
