Travel Tip: Use HART 275LX to travel between Tampa International Airport and City of Tampa

If you are visiting or leaving Tampa and want to save some money on a taxi or Uber consider using HART’s new 275LX bus route.

The limited-stop service route connects Tampa International Airport to Downtown Tampa, University Area (near USF), New Tampa, and Wesley Chapel. If these are your destinations you can get much closer to them like this or grab a ride-share after you get closer to your final destination.

The limited-service should help to get you quicker to your destination and where you’re trying to visit. Downtown Tampa and The Shoppes at Wiregrass also have plenty of restaurants and things to keep you occupied.

Fares are only $2.00 each way and $4.00 a day and $65.00 for 31 days. An Uber or Lyft from Downtown Tampa to TIA would likely run you at least $20. FREE Wi-Fi is available on-board and also at bus stops.

The service operates 7 days a week and connects Hillsborough County and Pasco County.

Once in Downtown Tampa you also can catch the Pirate Water Taxi to get access to stops along the Hillsborough River and to Seminole Heights which has some of Tampa’s best restaurants and the Lowry Park Zoo.

There is also the TECO Line Streetcar System which connects to Tampa’s Historic Ybor City. The TECO Streetcar will be free to all riders after October 7th. Also don’t miss the Christmas shows at The Shoppes at Wiregrass. Those are great.
