Enhancing the Connectivity of High Speed Rail in the Orlando-Tampa Corridor with Local Public Transportation Systems: Issues and Opportunities

High Speed Rail (HSR) will only be truly transformational if it has effective connections with as many other modes of transportation as possible. This project looks at local public transportation systems that have opportunities to connect to HSR stations planned for the Orlando-Tampa corridor. How will the availability of HSR impact the existing transit services? What approach are local agencies taking to re-align services to benefit both local and regional travelers? The creation and authority of the Florida Rail Enterprise High Speed Rail project is a catalyst for local agencies to reassess their existing and planned public transportation development activities. It is the objective of this project to analyze these local services and plans to provide insight for enhanced interconnectivity opportunities to the planned HSR stations. With effective connections, the High Speed Rail Project can create a public transportation system for much of the state of Florida.
