Wi-Fi Coming to HART Vehicles!

Free Wi-Fi will soon be available on HART vehicles
HART riders will soon be able to get more out of their commute with free Wi-Fi on all fixed-route buses. In April, you will be able to send emails, check the latest travel updates or even crush some candy without eating into your mobile data on board our buses! Starting Monday, April 4, bus passengers will be able to use high speed Wi-Fi free of charge on HART to browse the Internet, watch movies, listen to music and more.

Beginning Monday, February 15, Wi-Fi hardware will start to be installed on the HART system in phases with 6 buses being upgraded every day. Installers will be working during the evening and overnight hours to ensure that installation will not inconvenience passengers. Ultimately, this roll-out of Wi-Fi technology will be the foundation of the upcoming smart card program, where passengers will be able to use their smart phones and dedicated account based cards to travel not only the HART system, but throughout the Tampa Bay region. 

It's another way that HART keeps pace with your busy life. You can be productive and keep in touch, yet arrive at your destination safely. The expansion of Wi-Fi is yet another reason for choosing to ride the bus whether someone is going to work, to school or to the store. 

If you have any questions or comments about our Wi-Fi service, please contact Customer Service at (813) 254-HART (4278).
** Please note that the Wi-Fi signal is shared with other customers, so at busy times, your connection may be slower than normal.**
