PSTA Excursion Part 1!

Recently I had the good fortune of finally being able to go and check out what our cohorts at PSTA (Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority) are up to in St. Petersburg, Clearwater and Largo.  Since I became an operator (not driver Zach!) I’ve wanted to do this, but I never really had anyone who was interested in transit as I am to join me.  In these last few months a friend of mine, Zachary Ziegler came to visit me in Tampa.  So I decided that we should both make this journey, and we finally did.  Continue reading

Tampa V. Transit!

I love living in Tampa and I love mass transit.  The more I get involved with each, the more I realize that in Tampa’s current political climate the two may not be able to co-exist. Continue reading

RedBull Flugtag!!!

This Saturday October 8, 2011 RedBull will be gracing Tampa with its presence again.  For those of you who are not familiar with this wacky and fun event you can check out RedBull’s official website.

What I really want to get to is that, for this awesome event HART will be running an altered schedule and service to meet the demand of 100,000+ visitors that are expected to attend.  Park anywhere downtown, in Ybor, or at Channelside and you can avoid the traffic nightmare that will be ensuing.

If you don’t know what FlugTag is, start by getting out from underneath your rock, and then proceed to push play 😀

See the city you live in from the passenger seat

What is one of the best ways you can think of to explore the places where we live in and work?  You could walk, but you can only see so much in a given time.  What about your bike?  It’s a nice idea, but you only get a little bit further than your feet can carry you alone.  My car, that’s how!  Well you could use your car, but you have two issues there.  One, you can’t really take in whats around you or you might get into an accident.  Two, in our economic climate you won’t want to go far because of the price of gas.  There is one other option that most never EVER consider, THE BUS!
