“This is a plan that the city council has been working on for years,” Bradley said. “There will still be a stop [Real Canadian] supermarket. But, over there at the Clearwater Coliseum, you’ll see that eight buses can safely park there at the same time, which will give passengers a safer and more convenient way to transfer. It will also provide more amenities for our drivers, which is also important. “

If the contract is awarded, construction is expected to begin this summer.
