Plans for a ferry service across TampaBay are moving along. 

City and county leaders from Tampa and St. Petersburg met last week. The first priority is to provide the service from south county to Macdill, but Ed Turanchik says Mayor Rick Krisman wants to make St. Petersburg another destination for the service.

 

Turanchik says they plan to start the design and engineering process in September and then start working to get state and federal funding. Ideally he thinks they can have a ferry service up and running by the end of 2016.
