The city of Tampa’s transportation department has released it’s year-long study on one way to try to fix downtown traffic jams.

For the past year, the city has hosted four public meetings and received public feedback on their streetcar system and ways to expand it. The plan is to expand the TECO Streetcar as part of their inVision approach to transforming Tampa’s transit.

In a presentation Wednesday to Hillsborough County’s Metropolitan Planning for Transportation – city leaders showed maps of the three tracks they want to add.

Numbers show ridership is down by almost 8,000 people from 2015 to 2017, but they have a plan to fix that by making the streetcar more valuable to locals by making them more frequent.
