THEA Connected Vehicle Pilot
The Tampa Hillsborough Expressway Authority (THEA) and its partners are debuting innovative connected vehicle technology in Tampa’s Downtown, and the benefits will change how we view roadway travel.
A car or truck equipped with connected vehicle technology “talks” wirelessly to other vehicles, traffic signals, crosswalks and more. This wireless communication can help prevent crashes, keep traffic moving and even improve fuel efficiency.
THEA has equipped 10 buses, 8 streetcars and the cars of 1000+ individual volunteers with this exciting new technology to make downtown Tampa a safer, smarter place to walk, ride and drive.
