The Kriseman Administration Takes The Lead

Big news for ferries in Tampa Bay. The City of St. Petersburg is taking the lead to establish St. Pete to Tampa service during the tourist season. They have set aside $350,000 of BP spill funds to match it. It's a great use of BP funds, which are supposed to compensate for economic harm in our region resulting from the BP spill. So we could see seasonal ferry service running on weekends and evenings starting in 11 months and while the National NCAA Football Championship is here. This could be a big boost to getting the MacDill-South County commuter back in the fast lane. Many thanks to Mayor Kriseman and the St. Petersburg City Council for their unanimous support for this bold move! here
