Route 36 Re-alignment – Effective 6/6/16.

Beginning Monday, June 6, 2016, Hillsborough Area Regional Transit (HART) will be implementing a slight re-alignment in the routing of Route 36, which travels from the Interbay Peninsula (South Tampa Area) to Carrollwood. This permanent re-alignment is occurring because the intersection of Gunn Hwy and Linebaugh Ave is being reconfigured in a manner by which vehicles will no longer be permitted to turn left onto eastbound Gunn Hwy from westbound Linebaugh Ave. As a result of the re-alignment, buses will utilize the northbound entry ramp from Busch Blvd to northbound Dale Mabry Hwy, and the southbound exit ramp from southbound Dale Mabry Hwy to Busch Blvd. Busch Blvd turns into Gunn Hwy at the Dale Mabry interchange. Please refer to the HART diagram below for the current and new routing. Any questions or concerns should be directed to HART via the phone listed at the bottom of the flyer, or by visiting www.GoHART.org.

Route 74 Long-Term Detour – Effective 1/6/16 to TBD – May, 2016 Update

As first reported back in January, the Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority (PSTA) Route 74 has been on detour in the Gateway area of Pinellas due to construction along Gandy Blvd. In March, changes were made to the route to accommodate the closure of the 16th St N interchange at Gandy Blvd. Since the opening of the 94th Ave N interchange with Gandy Blvd in April, the detour routing has changed once again. Please see the diagram below for the current detour routing.

Please keep in mind that further changes to Route 74 may be made between now and the October, 2016 service change cycle. For the October service changes, significant changes are being planned for Routes 4, 59, and 74, among others. A separate blog post will follow regarding the June and October service changes. Any specific information regarding the Route 74 detour, and any upcoming route changes, should be directed to PSTA. You can contact PSTA at 727-540-1900.

Like most Federal Holidays, most transit agencies will be running limited services, with some agencies not running services at all. If you plan on using transit on Memorial Day, please plan your day accordingly…and in ahead, as customer service lines may be closed.
