Extended Streetcar Service for Weeknight Amalie Arena Events!

The Streetcar conveniently drops off behind Amalie Arena
Ever make the mistake of driving into Amalie Arena traffic? Honking cars and a scramble for parking is to be expected when some of the biggest names in entertainment come to town.

However, it doesn't have to be that way.

Tampa Historic Streetcar, Inc. and HART have decided to extend TECO Line Streetcar System service until midnight during weeknight/Sunday events at Amalie Arena.

Extended Service (Minimum intervals)

With over 20,000 fans expected at these events, the TECO Line Streetcar System offers a low cost and convenient way to avoid all the event traffic in downtown. Park in any of the Ybor City garages and ride the streetcar, which drops off right behind Amalie Arena.

Coming from the West?

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

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