Getting around Tampa Bay is a breeze – whether traveling by wheels, water, or your own two feet. The Tampa Riverwalk runs 2.7 miles through the heart of downtown and is reserved strictly for pedestrian traffic. Downtown is Tampa Bay’s central transportation hub with several options available throughout the week and weekend. Think outside of the car! Get to your destination quickly via HART’s new streamlined bus network, TECO Line Streetcar, bike path routes, complete sidewalk network, water taxi, Downtowner ride service, taxi, e-scooter, and/or rideshare (Uber/Lyft).
For getting around the Super Bowl LV downtown campus, the Tampa Riverwalk, made possible by Friends of the Riverwalk, a nonprofit organization working in tandem with the City of Tampa, provides a walkable path that connects the key venues of Super Bowl LV Week.
