Nice way to travel between downtown and historic Ybor City -- you get to see a good bit of downtown Tampa. Very friendly streetcar drivers. You can buy a ticket at the platform for each stop. They come only every 20 minutes on weekdays and more frequently on weekends - schedules posted near the platform at each stop. As of... More

This trolley was near empty both times we rode it. Not cheap, but nothing is free, I suppose. A good rest from driving, because it went from Ybor to sites downtown.

The streetcar is a cool way to see part of Tampa. The kids loved it and rode it on two separate days. We took it from downtown to the end of the line at Ybor City for supper. Ybor City is worth an evening visit and the streetcar from downtown is an easy way to get there if you don't... More

We took mom on this when she came to visit at Thanksgiving. It was a fun way to see downtown, Channelside, and Ybor City.

Easy to get your ticket. Is an easy way to get around, we used it for ride to Ybor and return for the Outback parade. Good price for one day pass, ride all you want for $5. One time ride is $2.50. Always nice for conversation with friends while seeing the area. Cost not great for short ride, unless you... More

The trolley is a fun way to move from the waterfront to the aquarium, channelside, Ybor or the cruise ports.

I've been to Tampa twice in the past two years but always first get all day passes to ride this trolley, first. When you hop on this trolley, it's like stepping back in time by 100 years. The woodwork on the interior is just fantastic! I've ridden the TECO from the Channelside District to the end of the line in... More

Need to go between Downtown and Ybor City? This is a fairly cheap way to do it. Operators are friendly and everything pretty much stays on schedule.
