Public Hearing for Route 97 Proposed Elimination, Scheduled for July 28

HART is holding a public hearing today, July 28, from 4 - 6 p.m., at the County Center, 26th Floor Conference Room, 601 E. Kennedy Blvd., Tampa, 33602. The purpose of the hearing is to give residents and/or groups the opportunity to present their views and comments regarding the proposed elimination of Route 97 - Green Line In-Town Trolley (weekend/evening service).

HART solicited public input about the proposed November service changes, including the elimination of Route 96 - Purple Line In-Town Trolley (weekday service), from June 21 – July 14. As a result of feedback received, the proposal has been modified to maintain Route 96, and instead eliminate Route 97. Final recommendations regarding November service changes will be on the agenda of the HART Board's regular meeting on Monday, August 1.

Today is the last day for public comments on the proposal. Comments may be sent electronically by visiting www.goHART.org or in writing to: HART Service Development, Attention: Route 97 Proposal, 1201 E. Seventh Ave., Tampa, FL 33605.
