Survey Time!

Participants, your equipment is already providing valuable data that will help make driving safer in Tampa and beyond! To supplement that data, you are required to complete three surveys documenting your opinions throughout the THEA CV Pilot. On December 12, 2019, all participants were sent an email notification to complete the second of these surveys. If you have not received this notification, please contact Rob Boelke at rob@tampacvpilot.com.

Has Anything Changed?

Have you sold your participating vehicle? Has your commute changed? If so, we want to hear from you! Researchers at the University of South Florida’s Center for Urban Transportation Research (CUTR) work daily collecting and interpreting data from each participating CV Pilot vehicle, and to ensure their data and findings remain accurate, we need to know when things change. Please reach out to Rob Boelke at rob@tampacvpilot.com if your participation status has changed.

Alerts Are Live

As of October 2019, participants in the treatment group who have received the latest firmware updates (version 20580 or 40175) should expect the full complement of alerts to be active in their vehicle throughout the remainder of the study. False alerts are possible due to GPS interference and recalibration. If you believe you are receiving false alerts on a consistent basis, please email Rob Boelke at rob@tampacvpilot.com with a description of your experience.

Maintenance Appointments

If you believe your equipment needs inspection, are considering purchasing a new vehicle, or require removal of the CV equipment from your vehicle for any reason, please schedule a maintenance appointment as soon as possible. Appointments are available on select Thursdays and Fridays between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. at the HCC Ybor Training Center (subject to change). Be sure to plan ahead, as availability is limited. There will be no maintenance availability the weeks of December 26-27, 2019 or January 2-3, 2020, as Hillsborough Community College campuses observe the holiday period.

Happy Holidays!

Holiday travel is in full swing, and those of us at the Tampa Hillsborough Expressway Authority would like to wish you safe travels as you visit family and friends during the festive season. With last-minute shoppers, students on break, and workers trying to get a head start on the holidays, both the Selmon Expressway and our downtown intersections can be busy. Participants should remain ready to receive alerts. For a refresher course on all applications, to view the CV Pilot training video or download additional copies of your training materials, go to www.TampaCVPilot.com and click on the Current Participants page.
