The Tampa Streetcar broke its monthly ridership record in March 2022 with more than 107,000 trips reported. Tampa’s extensive streetcar system connects the popular downtown area and Water Street to Historic Ybor City.

The TECO Line Streetcar is a heritage streetcar transit line in Tampa, Florida, run by the Hillsborough Area Regional Transportation Authority, owned by the city of Tampa, and managed by Tampa Historic Streetcar, Inc.


Tampa Streetcar 2nd for overall ridership in the nation

Its first 2.4-mile-long segment opened for service in 2002 while a 0.3-mile-long extension opened for service in December 2010. Using FDOT funding, the City is undertaking its InVision: Tampa Streetcar Project, consisting of feasibility and concept development for expansion and modernization of the current system. In October 2018 HART introduced three years of free fares and expanded service also made possible through an FDOT grant, which provides the groundwork for the system to grow in advance of the City’s expansion and modernization plans.

TECO Line Streetcar service is extended until midnight Sunday – Thursday when there is a Tampa Bay Lightning game or weeknight/Sunday night event at Amalie Arena. Extended streetcar service will operate every 20 minutes.
