In Hillsborough, we are waiting for some kind of transportation "plan" from the Transportation Policy Leadership Group that was formed last year to address this issue. And of course, we are anticipating how such plan will be funded and its costs.
In addition, there's been attention on our local transit agency, Hillsborough Area Regional Transit (HART), what their role currently is, what some on the Transportation Policy Leadership Group think it should be and where does HART go from here.
What HART has shown since 2010 is a transit agency can improve and expand their service in a cost-effective way without using federal funds and even come in under budget.
The conversation for what's next for HART will continue.
We look forward to the August Transportation Policy Leadership Group meeting where a list of proposed transportation projects will be presented.
