The Tampa Bay area poses a unique challenge for mass transportation. We'll take a look at the reasons we're behind other metropolitan areas our size and what community leaders are doing to increase our transportation options. You'll also see why having better transportation options makes for a better economy. And we'll hear from one man who has turned his commute to work into a way of life for his whole family.
Also: For years, Floridians have heard that the solution to our traffic woes is rail: commuter rail, high-speed rail, light rail. In the Bay area, creation of a regional transit master plan is underway and Tampa's mayor is pushing for light rail in the city. We'll talk to people from Miami and Salt Lake City to find out how they created their rail systems and what they've learned from operating them.

Gabriel Tinnaro in the alley behind the house, on his way to work Gabriel Tinnaro
Gabriel and Lesley Tinnaro of St. Petersburg live their lives as most people do. They work for a living while raising a family. They pay bills and go to the store just like everyone else does. Three years ago, though, Gabriel made a change he now says he's really benefitted from - by denying himself the typical convenience most of us take for granted: driving to work. He doesn't focus on what he's missing, though - he's focusing on what he's gained. Producer Larry Elliston brings us Gabriel's journey in this week's feature for Florida Stories.
