Here is what we learned:
|Daily AM Streetcar Ridership Per Hour During Pilot|
- Streetcar morning ridership averaged 428 riders weekly
- Ridership during "rush hour" averaged roughly from 2.9 - 5.9 riders per hour
For those now hooked on the car-free commute, the route 8 roughly parallels the TECO Line Streetcar System and may make a great option! Service to Downtown Tampa begins at 5:10 a.m. and operates every 30 minutes. A one-day pass is only $4.00. Visit www.goHART.org for more information.
Stay involved in the process!
|A study is underway to look at modernizing and extending the Streetcar|
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 in Ybor City, Downtown Tampa, and beyond. A feasibility study is currently underway to look at the possible extension and modernization of the TECO Line Streetcar System.
Here is where you come in! The next brainstorming session will be held April 4th at the Tampa Bay History Center from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Share your thoughts and be a part of the process.
Please also take this online survey regarding the Streetcar.
The momentum is there. As downtown grows by leaps and bounds, so will the need for expanded transit options and alternative commutes.
Thank you for the continued support!
