In a rare appearance at the Hillsborough County government center, Kriseman presented his plan for a six-month, $1.34 million pilot program that would connect the downtowns of St. Pete and Tampa by a ferry that would run six days a week across Tampa Bay.
Kriseman met Tuesday with Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn, who expressed interest but didn’t fully commit to the project after.
Hillsborough commissioners, however, were quick to jump aboard and voted 5-1 to allocate up to $350,000 for the project. The money will only be awarded if all four regional governments affected — Hillsborough County, Pinellas County, Tampa and St. Petersburg — contribute $350,000 to the pilot program and if they all agree to the terms Kriseman negotiates with the company operating the service, HMS Ferries.
Kriseman said for too long Tampa Bay citizens have been left “wondering how two cities and two counties that are surrounded by water have no waterfront transportation.” If realized, a single vessel would make three to four round trips per day Tuesday through Sunday, with opportunities for charter rides and more runs during large conventions or other marquee events. The planned route is from downtown St. Pete near the Museum of History to the Tampa Convention Center.
