Project Type: Streetcar and Bus Rapid Transit, Transit-Oriented Development Pilot Project
Project Status: Completed
Dates: February 2020 – October 2022
Site Area: 10-mile corridor
Team: Plusurbia Design + HDR (Lead)
Client: Hillsborough Area Regional Transit Authority
The HART TOD Pilot Project is focused on the future of communities along the planned routes for HART’s Arterial Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) service and the City of Tampa’s Streetcar Extension project. The project study area extends from Downtown Tampa to the University of South Florida (USF) along Florida and Fowler Avenues. HDR is working with local stakeholders to explore the potential for infill, redevelopment, and retrofit along the project corridor to increase levels of transit supportiveness, improve community livability and competitiveness, and increase access to regional employment and educational destinations.
The project will result in policy and regulatory strategies and economic incentives to guide public and private investment, promote equitable infill and redevelopment, conserve and protect corridor communities, improve walkability and transit accessibility, and build demand for enhanced transit service. Recommendations will also be designed for application along other corridors planned for enhanced transit across the City of Tampa and Hillsborough County.
