Jewel on the Water, Served by the Streetcar

Take the TECO Line Streetcar System to
the Florida Aquarium!
Looking for something to do today? Well, a ride on the TECO Line Streetcar System always fills the bill! While you're onboard, you'll see the is-it-a-seashell-or-is-it-a-diamond form of the beautiful Florida Aquarium right outside your window.

But don't just let it pass you by - hop off at Channelside and pop in for a visit! Tonight is the annual Brews by the Bay celebration, a night of Oktoberfest fun, food and beverages with a German accent. There's a special admission for this event, and the Aquarium will be closing to regular customers at 4:30 p.m. to get ready for it. If you're headed to Brews by the Bay, arrive in style on a streetcar!

Guppyween October 24
Halloween comes early at the Florida Aquarium! If your little guys and gals are already itching to show off those new costumes, pay a visit to Guppyween, the Aquarium's children's Halloween party on Sunday, October 24 from 4 p.m. until 8 p.m. It's also a safe alternative to trick-or-treating. And be sure to include a streetcar ride on your list of things to do. Trust us, your little gremlins will love it!

History of Train Travel
Also this weekend, the Tampa Bay History Center opened a new exhibit that explores the history of trains and rail travel called "From the Orange Blossom Special to High Speed Rail: Train Travel in Tampa Bay."

As HART's Facebook page notes, "How cool would it be to take the TECO Line Streetcar to the newly opened 'Train Travel in Tampa Bay' exhibit at the Tampa History Museum?"

Riding a piece of history to learn about history. Yep, that's pretty cool.

USF Bulls Take the Field Today
The USF Bulls clash with Big East Conference rival Syracuse today at 12 noon. HART customers should expect bus travel around Raymond James Stadium to be affected by traffic management measures in the hours before and after the game. Click here for detour information from HART's website, and call (813) 254-HART for details on stops that may not be accessible during the game.

Go Bulls and Go HART!

UPDATE: Game time was originally scheduled for 7:05 p.m., but changed to noon.
