In a first-of-its-kind partnership, Pinellas and Hillsborough counties and the cities of St. Petersburg and Tampa have invested $350,000 each to explore the feasibility of a high-speed ferry service as a transportation alternative for residents, commuters and tourists.

After months of planning and negotiations, it seems like the pilot project is on the verge of being launched just in time to meet the terms of the contract between the four local governments.

“With anticipation high for a St. Petersburg/Tampa ferry service, organizers of the project today announced an exciting set of launch events, including a series of runs for supporters to ‘Test the Waters,’ plus a striking new logo and a formal name: The Cross-Bay Ferry,” was the lead on a press release sent out Sept. 21.

“It was a surprise, something I never would’ve imagined would happen to me,” said Craig of receiving the award.

MADEIRA BEACH - A longtime goal for Mark Hubbard is coming to fruition. Thanks to a $25,000 donation from the city of Madeira Beach, Tampa Bay Ferry and Taxi will become a reality Oct. 1 when it embarks on its maiden voyage through the Intracoastal Waterway.

“This wouldn’t be possible without forward, progressive thinking,” Hubbard said at a Sept. 14 press conference. “Hopefully, other communities will help us bring it further south.”

County officials, who also are on board, see the service as a much-needed alternative to crowded beach streets and parking lots.
