On Call

Have questions? Give us a call on Thursday!
Light rail, high-speed rail, rapid transit, flex service...does all this transit talk around town leave you with lots of questions?

We're here to help - just give us a call. A "town call," that is!

As part of our commitment to help Hillsborough County residents understand the solutions that are being proposed for our area's transportation issues, HART and the Metropolitan Planning Organization are hosting a "Town Call" event this Thursday, October 7, from 7:10 p.m. until 8:10 p.m.

If you'd like to join in the discussion on Thursday night, just call 1-877-229-8493 and enter 15177 when prompted.

Legendary Tampa Bay radio and TV host Jack Harris will moderate the event, and HART CEO David Armijo, Hillsborough County Commissioner Kevin Beckner and MPO Executive Director Ray Chiaramonte will be on hand to answer your questions.

HART Leaders Confirmed for National Committee
Recently, we told you that HART Board Vice-Chair Alison Hewitt and CEO David Armijo were nominated to serve on the American Public Transportation Association's Executive Committee (APTA). Today APTA announced that its membership has voted to approve the slate of officers and committee members, confirming that Ms. Hewitt and Mr. Armijo will serve on the committee.

Ms. Hewitt and Mr. Armijo, along with other key members of HART's leadership team, are attending the APTA annual meeting in San Antonio, TX this week to accept the national Outstanding Public Transportation System honor, awarded to HART earlier this year.
