Florida: Buses and Streetcars Added to Tampa Connected Vehicle Pilot

Tampa Hillsborough Expressway Authority (THEA) is hosting a Connected Vehicle Pilot Showcase on November 29, 2018, as a first-ever demonstration of how connected vehicle safety applications on Hillsborough Area Regional Transit Authority (HART) buses and TECO Line System streetcars can help prevent crashes between cars, the transit vehicles and pedestrians.

Participants in the showcase can ride in a car, bus and streetcar connected to the roadway and other connected vehicles. Officials from the U.S. Department of Transportation are expected to participate.
