Streetcar service during Tampa Bay Lightning games


HART is the thunder all season long!  The TECO Line Streetcar will have extended service during all Tampa Bay Lightning games.

With over 20,000 fans converging on the St. Pete Times Forum, the TECO Line Streetcar offers a low cost and convenient way to avoid all the game traffic in downtown.  Park in any of the Ybor City garages and ride the streetcar, which drops off right at the Tampa Bay Times Forum!

Coming from the West?

Park in the Fort Brooke Garage located on Franklin St. and Whiting St., Whiting Station is directly across the street from the garage.

Not going to the game?  Anyone can take advantage of this later service to get around Downtown Tampa, the Channel District and Ybor City!

Ticket Vending Machines  are located at every station

Know before you go:
  • The streetcar costs $2.50 per ride and $5.00 all day. We also offer a family pass, which is allows up to 2 adults and 3 children, or 1 adult and 4 children to ride all day for $12.50. Discount passes are available for youth 5-17, ages 65+, and those with disabilities.
  • Streetcar Motormen do not provide change. Please use the ticket vending machine located at the station if you do not have exact change or are paying with a debit/credit card.
  • Streetcar service will operate until the Tampa Bay Lightning games have ended, with one last trip immediately following the game.
  • A map of the TECO Line Streetcar System can be found here

Go Bolts!

  1. Come on HART get a clue the streetcar is a joke, it doesnt go anywhere... What if you need to get back to plant city after a hockey game? You should look at other cities transit programs cause i've lived in several cities and your transit program is the worst

  2. Plant City opted out of HART service, that is currently why we only serve the fringe of Plant City with one Commuter Express route.
