On todayâ€™s program we talked with four people involved with our local transit systems. Our guests included Hillsborough Area Regional Transit (HART) Chief Operations Officer Katharine Eagan, Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority (PSTA) External Affairs Officer Bob Lasher, Tampa Bay Area Regional Transportation Authority (TBARTA) Director of Programs and Operations Sandi Moody and also TBARTAâ€™s Communication Specialist, Alex English, joined the program. The conversation focused on the continued growth of ridership, successful routes, how routing decisions are made, why there are only two bike racks on buses, and concerns about funding short-falls. Alex explained this weekâ€™s Telephone Town Hall Meeting with Hillsborough County residents about transportation issues.
