HARTflex to begin in April

After three years of delays, HARTflex is finally set to begin service in April! This will mark the begining of reservation-based, flex-route minibus service in the Tampa Bay Area.

How does it work?

Patrons in SouthShore and Brandon, the first two areas to recieve service, can call a special reservation line (to be announced) and place a reservation. Minibuses then transfer passengers from their homes to their place of business or other points of interest within the service area. HARTflex buses will follow a designated fixed route, but will be able to deviate up to 3/4 of a mile outside of that desginated route. HARTflex service will also connect to HART Local or Commuter Express bus routes to allow for connectivity outside the designated neighborhood zones.

See this article for more details, including the proposed fares.
