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.
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.
There will be a Hurricane Florence fundraiser on September 20th and September 21st at Elevage inside the Epicurean Hotel in South Tampa. The proceeds will go to the American Red Cross with funds earmarked for Hurricane Florence relief.
Elevage Executive Chef Chad Johnson says, “It may only be a drop in the bucket, but we hope that our friends in Tampa can come share a meal that will help provide a small measure of relief for our friends in the Carolinas.”
