West Central Florida and Tampa Bay

Page Updated on 11/29/16.

The Tampa Bay Area comprises of several transit agencies, with each covering the counties by which they were created in. The agencies that I cover in this area comprise of Hillsborough (HART), Pinellas (PSTA), Manatee (MCAT), Sarasota (SCAT), Pasco (PCPT), Hernando (THEbus), and Citrus (Citrus County Transit) Counties. There is also a pilot ferry service (the Cross-Bay Ferry) that operates seven-days-a-week between Downtown Tampa and Downtown St. Petersburg.

A section on Polk County’s public transit system (Polk Citrus Connection) will be created later on.

Since Pasco, Hernando, and Citrus Counties are much smaller, their transit agencies are also smaller than the counties I’ve mentioned so far. Thus, these three counties are all listed on the Northern Tampa Bay Page.
