Tampa's Downtown

Getting Around

Getting From One Area of Downtown to Another is Easy

Downtown is Tampa Bay’s central transportation hub with several options available throughout the week and weekend. Get to your destination quickly via DASH, HART’s new streamlined bus network, TECO Line Streetcar, bike path routes, complete sidewalk network, water taxi, taxi, e-scooter, and/or rideshare (Uber/Lyft).


Downtown’s app-based hub-to-hub micro-transit service is a great way to get around all of Downtown. Whether as a connection to transit or to park only once, use DASH to easily navigate between Downtown’s seven neighborhoods and all they have to offer. This is a service of the Tampa Downtown Partnership.

Public Transportation

There are plenty of options to get around downtown Tampa. Take a ride in Tampa Bay’s first autonomous, electric shuttle, the HART Smart AV. There are even water taxis that traverse the river. The historic streetcars are steadily gaining use as a means for downtown Tampa public transportation, and are a big bonus during major events.
