There are twelve, six passenger street-legal electric low speed vehicles (traveling on roads 35 mph or less), and includes one handicap accessible vehicle.

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.
