Tampa Bay's cross-bay ferry, which has been operating between Tampa and St. Pete from November to April since 2018, could expand to year-round service if local leaders agree to contribute.
What's happening: The ferry's three-year agreement expired last month, and Hillsborough County took the lead in negotiating an extension, per the Tampa Bay Times.
- The commission is set to vote Wednesday.
Between the lines: It would mean an increase in government subsidies — split evenly between Tampa, St. Pete, Pinellas and Hillsborough — from $700,000 in the first year to just over $1 million when year-round service begins.
