Hop on HART and the TECO Line Streetcar to Boom by the Bay!

HART is joining in on the Boom by the Bay festivities with a FREE shuttle service from the Marion Transit Center to the event!

Boom by the Bay will feature fireworks, live music, and more in six different locations along downtown Tampa's waterfront:
  • Armature Works - Routes 1, 5, 6
  • Bayshore Blvd. - Route 14
  • Curtis Hixon Park - TECO Line Streetcar, Routes 1, 7, 8, 9, 10, 19, 30, 360LX
  • Julian B. Lane Riverfront Park - Routes 7, 10
  • Sparkman Wharf - TECO Line Streetcar, Route 9
  • Tampa Convention Center - TECO Line Streetcar, Route 19

Event-goers will be able to pick up the free shuttles from the HART Marion Transit Center (MTC) in downtown. The event shuttles will operate every 15 minutes from 3 PM - 11 PM.

HART and the City of Tampa are encouraging event-goers to hop on the fare-free TECO Line Streetcar or one of the FREE HART shuttles at MTC. Thirteen HART routes will also serve MTC on Independence Day.

Please note: HART will be operating on a Sunday service level, which means a number of routes operating to/from MTC will cease operating around 10 PM. Check for specific route information.
