The Transit Museum by HARTride 2012
Transit items I’ve collected.
Welcome to the Transit Museum! I originally housed this page under the Hillsborough Area Regional Transit (HART) section, but I eventually siphoned it into its own realm to include other transit agencies. Here you will find a photos & scans of transit passes, maps, & schedule booklets, among other items to come. Please check back periodically – as I do upload new content as they become available. If you would like to contribute anything, please let me know through the
Page was last updated on 02/02/2020.
This gallery houses transit items from HART, PSTA, & SCAT (Sarasota), among others. Below is all of the items that I’ve obtained over time.
Note: With the eventual public rollout of the Flamingo Fares regional fare collection program, mag swipe cards for HART, PSTA, & SCAT (Sarasota) will be phased out & replaced by single-day Flamingo cards, reloadable Flamingo cards, & the Flamingo Fares smartphone app. LYNX in Orlando has a similar endeavor in the works – as do many other transit agencies. This is why I tend to keep some of my mag swipe passes that I’ve previously used.

Florida Contributor Gallery
This gallery houses Florida transit materials that were submitted to me by others.
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. All three routes have seen significant alterations. Scan by Orion 2003. Route 14 has also been significantly altered over the years. It no longer jogs over to where Raymond James Stadium is today, nor does it venture into Downtown Tampa. 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. Items were contributed to me by Orion 2003.
