TAMPA BAY AREA | Public Transport

This thread will be dedicated to the Tampa Bay region in Florida, United States.

Currently, our only form of passenger rail is a heritage streetcar in Tampa. Otherwise, our region is only comprised of bus networks. Plans however are being formulated to modernize and expand the streetcar.

Bus Networks


HART transit bus

Passenger Rail


TECOline Streetcar railcar

Here's the streetcar map, along with bus connections in downtown Tampa.

Surprising loss of ridership.

I have read that Puerto Rico is in the process of becoming depopulated, with much of the population headed towards central Florida, although it may be more Orlando than Tampa-bound.

Nice! Both systems have always interested me as they use twin heritage style cars made in the same run at the factory. Plus I live in Tampa

Vinik shows support of light rail during ‘State of Transit’ event, while others deflect issue

TAMPA — “Beyond the bus” was the theme of Tuesday’s transit presentation — but it didn’t go as far as trains.

Topics of discussion at the first “State of Transit,” sponsored by the Hillsborough Area Regional Transit Authority, included ferries, autonomous vehicles, and partnerships with Uber and cab companies[...]
