Welcome to the Transit Museum! I originally housed this page under the Hillsborough Area Regional Transit (HART) page, but I wanted to expand this page to include other transit districts. Here you will find a few scans of transit passes and brochures from the past, as well as the present. I hope that I will be able to have more on this page in the distant future. If you would like to contribute anything, please let me know through the Contact Form.
Hillsborough Area Regional Transit (HART) – Tampa, FL
A huge thanks to Orion 2003 for contributing his scans of HART passes and brochures from the 1990s, which are shown below.
This is a transit guide map from the late 1990s. Route 46 once ran between the Port of Tampa and Davis Island. Scan by Orion 2003.
1999 brochure for Route 39 & a January 2000 Transit Guide. Notice the Flxible Metro bus on the Transit Guide. Those buses were in service from the 1980s until 2002, when they were replaced by Gillig Low Floor models. Scan by Orion 2003.
Brochures for Routes 7, 14, & 36. Scan by Orion 2003.
Route 7 used to be all over the place, following part of the route now carried by Route 45. Route 36 used to serve WestShore Mall, but was later altered to travel down Dale Mabry Hwy & Himes Ave only. The extension to MacDill AFB came in around 2005. Route 39 largely continues to follow the same route it was established with (the Temple Heights segment was removed in 2012). Scan by Orion 2003.
Route 14 still follows this route, but the Tampa Bay Center leg was eliminated sometime in the early 2000s, likely to improve efficiency. I’m sure the downfall of the mall also contributed to the decline in public transit in that area. Scan by Orion 2003.
Here are some passes that HART no longer circulates. Notice how the 1998-dated passes have a mag-stripe at the bottom. This was the first inception of mag-stripe passes to be used on the HART system. Punch cards are long gone. Scan by Orion 2003.
