The final month of the Cross-Bay Ferry (CBF) pilot project is fast approaching. After boasting huge revenues over the past few months, the service looks to fuel further interest by providing rides from Tampa to St. Pete during Rays games during the month of April.
The extended service will provide later runs for Rays fans to take to and from regular season games. Tampa residents won’t need to worry about transportation from the dock outside the St. Pete Museum of History to Tropicana because the PSTA will provide free rides for ferry passengers.
Those who take the ferry from Tampa to St. Pete can show their CBF ticket at the Rays box office for a $10 discount on game tickets. When the game closes out, attendees just need to take the tunnel back to Ferg’s and show their ticket voucher at the Central Avenue Trolley stop for a ride back to the vessel. Learn more about the deal on MLB’s website.
The deals work both ways. The Tampa Streetcar will provide 50% off daily passes for ferry riders the entire month of April. Through the end of March, the CBF is running a special commuter service price at $5 for one way trips for adults, and $2 one way trips for youth (ages 3-12).
