TECO Line Streetcar System morning service pilot ends in Tampa

The six-month TECO Line Streetcar System morning service pilot ended in Tampa last week. Offering extended weekday morning service for commuters, the pilot complemented the existing service the TECO Line Streetcar System already provides to Tampa’s workers and residents.     

Now the pilot is complete, the City of Tampa, the Florida Department of Transportation, and HART are looking at ways to make the TECO Line Streetcar System a viable commuting option, and are inviting you to be part of the conversation. As well as taking an online survey, you can attend the next brainstorming session, which will be held on Tuesday, April 4 at the Tampa Bay History Center from 5:30-7:30pm.

In the meantime, there are plenty of commuting options for downtown residents and workers. You’ll find Coast stations dotted along the TECO Line Streetcar System route, making it easy to grab a bike and cycle the route, even when the streetcar isn’t in service. As ever, you can check the system map to see where the nearest hubs are, but here’s a quick recap.
