Getting Around

As with most US cities, a rental car is the easiest way to get around Tampa for travellers due to limited public transport and the fact that many visitors choose to stay just outside the city in one of the neighbouring resorts. However, HART provides local and express bus services for the Tampa area, serving all the major malls and attractions and connecting to nearby beaches. Particularly useful for tourists is the TECO Line streetcar system, which operates in Tampa's historic district, connecting the downtown area, Channelside, and Ybor City. Taxis are available, but often need to be ordered in advance. Visitors can also rely on Uber or Lyft.
