Getting Around Tampa

The Tampa International Airport (TPA) is five miles from downtown. Amtrak services Tampa, arriving downtown at Union Station on Nebraska Avenue. For more information, visit www.amtrak.com. Travel time from the airport via most modes of transportation is about 20 minutes. St. Petersburg is a 30-minute drive from the Tampa airport.

For seeing the sights, it's highly recommended that you rent a car. All the majors, such as Avis and Hertz, are at the airport in the Red Baggage Claim Area and across the walkway in the Blue Baggage Claim Area. Daily rental rates generally range from $50 to $75. Parking is relatively easy around Tampa, whether you choose street parking or the many garages. Municipal parking garages charge $1.25 per hour -- maxing out at less than $7 for 24 hours.

Shuttle vans, such as Bay Shuttle and SuperShuttle provide service 24/7, leaving from all four quadrants of the Baggage Claim Level and providing services to a number of outlying destinations. Fares range from $11 to $19 from the airport to the cruise terminal.

Taxis need to be called, though you'll generally see some lined up near the hotels, the performing arts center, and terminals. Two reliable taxi companies to call are Tampa Bay Cab and United Cab. The initial drop is $1, then $1.50 for each additional mile. The flat fare from the airport to downtown is $20.

The Hillsborough Area Regional Transit Authority (HART) operates Tampa area buses, trolleys and the TECO Line Streetcar System. HART's Route 30 runs buses from the airport to downtown, leaving from the east end of the Red Baggage Claim area. One-way local fare is $1.50 for adults, or 75 cents for seniors and youths 17 and younger.

The TECO Line Streetcar System takes visitors back in time in replicas of Tampa's streetcars of the 1920's. The streetcar system whisks you on a 2.4-mile journey between downtown area hotels, the shops and restaurants of Channelside, the Port of Tampa and cruise terminals, the Florida Aquarium, and the Ybor City historic district. You can travel the entire line in only 22 minutes, giving you plenty of time to sightsee before your ship sails. The one-way fare is $2 for adults, $1 for seniors and youths. Children younger than 4 ride free.

The rubber-tire In-Town Trolleys circulate around downtown and the Hyde Park Village shopping area. The In-Town Trolley connects with the TECO Line Streetcar System at the striking Southern Transportation Plaza at the southern end of the streetcar line, only a short ride from the cruise terminals. One-way fare for the trolley is 50 cents.

Visitors can take advantage of the 1-Day Unlimited Ride Fare card, costing $4 for adults, or $2 for youths and seniors. If your stay in Tampa will last a little longer, you can purchase a 3-Day Unlimited Ride Visitor Pass for $9.75, available though HART facilities and select hotels.
