The Tampa Bay Passenger Ferry Project, which aimed to establish a ferry system for commuters between South Hillsborough County, MacDill Air Force Base, Downtown Tampa, and Downtown St. Pete, has been shelved by Hillsborough County Commissioners primarily because of the escalating expenses.
The potential of Tampa Bay's untapped resource for regional ferry services is immense. The Tampa Bay Ferries Alliance firmly believes ferry service is a proven, adaptable, and highly effective transit option, offering a cost-effective solution to connect communities and move people efficiently. The Alliance will continue to work with Hillsborough and Pinellas County residents, community partners, and government leaders to make this a reality.
The Tampa Bay Ferries Alliance is an independent nonprofit organization committed to bringing quality, sustainable, permanent year-round ferry service to the Tampa Bay region. For more information or to join this effort, visit www.TampaBayFerriesAlliance.org.
