There are twelve, six passenger street-legal electric low speed vehicles (traveling on roads 35 mph or less), and includes one handicap accessible vehicle. In August 2017, two Chevrolet Bolts were added to the fleet. The five passenger vehicles are also 100% electric and hailed through the app.

The Downtowner vehicles operate seven days a week within Downtown Tampa’s business district, Channel District, River Arts District, the University of Tampa area, as well as the non-gated north end of Harbour Island.

Hours of Operation:

Monday – Friday: 6am – 11pm (17 hours)
Saturday – Sunday: 11am – 11pm (12 hours)

This transportation initiative could not have been possible without Private-Public Partnership support. Thanks to the generosity of the Downtowner Partners.
