MidPoint for Thursday, Feb 1st – Scott Pringle, lead consultant on proposed BRT project to run from Wesley Chapel to St. Pete


Scott Jacobs is with Jacobs Engineering,  the consulting group leading the Regional Transit Feasibility Plan in the Tampa Bay area.

Two weeks ago, his group unveiled to the public a proposed 41-mile Bus Rapid Transit project that would run from Wesley Chapel in Pasco County down to St.Petersburg.

The total cost for the I-275/BRT project would range between $380-$455 million, and would take approximately five years to build if approved by local lawmakers.
