HART Service Changes Go Into Effect December 2

Service changes go into effect Dec. 2.
As part of our continued commitment to providing ease of access and convenience for patrons, HART is implementing minor service changes effective Sunday, December 2. HART makes regular service adjustments three times a year in response to public feedback and also to improve safety and efficiency. Routes are primarily selected for adjustment based upon demonstrated ridership and input via the customer service database.

The following HART service changes go into effect on Sunday, December 2:

Route and Schedule Adjustments:
  • Route 45 is being modified to serve Busch Blvd., between North Blvd. and Florida Ave.
  • Routes 60LX and 360LX will no longer serve Westfield Brandon Mall. 
  • Route 60LX will be extended to serve Culbreath at Bloomingdale Park-n-Ride.
  • Route 360LX is being extended to serve J.C. Handly Park-n-Ride.
Schedule Adjustments:
  • The TECO Line Streetcar will have minor "last trip of the night schedule adjustments.

Route 60LX will now operate along U.S. 301 to Bloomingdale Ave., ceasing at the Bloomingdale Park-n-Ride. This will provide the Valrico area with all day limited-stop service to Tampa International Airport and the rest of the HART service network.

Route 360LX will operate along Lumsden Rd. before turning on Kings Ave. (entering the J.C. Handly Park-n-Ride) and looping back on Bloomingdale Ave. and finally Providence Rd.

Riders wishing to connect between routes 60LX or 360LX and routes 37, 46, 75LX, or HARTFlex Brandon should transfer using routes 8 or 31 (at Providence Rd. and Bloomingdale Ave, and at Westfield Brandon Mall).

HART in the Community

HART staff will be out in the community at the Marion Transit Center and Westfield Brandon Mall bus stop over the next two weeks talking to riders about the service changes.
You can view the new route schedules on goHART.org or contact HART customer service at (813) 254-4278 for more information.
