Breaking News - Board Votes for Light Rail

Light rail could be coming to the streets of Hillsborough County.
In a unanimous decision, the HART Board of Directors voted this morning for light rail as the preferred mode for the proposed rapid transit improvement in Hillsborough County.

The vote came after HART staff presented the findings of the Alternatives Analysis study, which recommended light rail as the best solution for transportation issues in the study area's Northeast and West corridors.

The Board chose light rail over bus rapid transit service, in agreement with the study conclusions.

The Board is expected to make a decision on the final alignments of the system for submission to the FTA by the end of the year.
