If the questionnaire confirms you’re eligible, you can easily schedule an installation appointment online.
Your new equipment is designed to display safety messages, communicate with traffic signals and more to help you stay safe when driving downtown.
Get ready for the future
The THEA Connected Vehicle Pilot is a research project to test the potential safety, mobility and environmental benefits of connected vehicle technology. As a participating driver, you will have equipment installed in your car that will “talk” to other equipped cars to help prevent crashes. When in the downtown deployment area, your car will also communicate with traffic signals, crosswalks and more to enhance safety and keep traffic moving.
The equipment is free and yours to keep. Best of all, participating drivers will receive a 50% toll rebate for travel on the Lee Roy Selmon Expressway, up to a maximum of $550.
To participate, you must be 18 years or older, have a Florida driver’s license and drive regularly in the downtown Tampa deployment area. Additional criteria apply, so take the driver eligibility questionnaire today.
We can accept only 1,600 drivers, so don’t delay!
You may also be interested in participating as a pedestrian. Or, if you’d just like to stay in the know and join the fun, let us know by becoming a fan of the THEA Connected Vehicle Pilot!
