It seems there is a new campaign to get the attention of Florida’s elected officials when it comes to public transportation.

IM4Transit is a campaign of the Board of the Florida Public Transportation Association to identify, recruit, and mobilize at least 100,000 pro-transit Floridians.

If you support public transportation in Florida, go to  www.im4transit.org/ and show your support.  It would be nice to have 100,000 people tell Rick Scott want more transportation options.  You can also go to Facebook at: http://www.facebook.com/im4transit.

    Has anyone seen what they’re up to in Tampa?

    The Tampa Bay Partnership, which is the regional organization tasked to market Tampa Bay to the world, initiated a transit iniative called “Tampa Bay on Track.” The website is pretty informative http://www.tampabayontrack.org. To paraphrase their words, the Tampa Bay Partnership believes that transit is needed due to growth, economic competitiveness, and a lack of alternatives. On the site, they have a section called, “What really happened with high speed rail,” a section giving people basic info on transit-oriented developent, and great community info and ways to get involved, request speakers, etc.

    Is there a Miami-Dade or South Florida partnership doing something similar? If not, there should be. The people in Tampa are looking (and moving forward) to be more competitive in a global market and they believe transit is a primary aspect of future success. We should be following their lead.
