Can't bean the $5 all day pass especially if your a tourist! I had to burn some time while my wife was at a conference. I road the trolley literally from one end to the other. Very relaxing too. If you are looking for a way to get from the arena area to Ybor this is the way!!

A leisurely trip from Tampa's "cigar capital" past interesting storefronts, through a residential neighborhood (watch for the chickens) and an industrial one, past port facilities and cruise ship docks, into the heart of downtown Tampa -- and return. A pleasant and lazy way to sightsee.

We hopped on just for fun with no real destination. Rode to Ybor and back to the convention center. The streetcars were pretty authentic replicas. It was a fun ride.

The conductor was extremely nice and very customer service oriented. They answered questions and told us where to go. The trolley is not super fast took about 20 minutes from the Amalie Arena

Used the line to get from convention center to ybor city. Better than walking, less expensive than a cab. They've plastered the windows with those ads that are meshy. Great for revenue, but you can hardly see out the d*^m car! 2.50 fare

The trolley reminded me of the ones in Pittsburgh, comfortable wooden seats & friendly helpful conductors. They run back & forth from downtown Tampa to Ybor City. You can buy an all day pass for $5, one way for $2.50 and seniors & kids under 17 for $1.25. You get on and off at any stop along the route. There... More

Took the streetcar from downtown Tampa to Ybor following the Gasparilla parade. Crowded but fun way to get to our destination for dinner on Saturday evening. I don't get to ride it often but it's always memorable when I do climb aboard.

This is a good way to experience different areas if the city. I did not go anywhere, I just road the streetcar system from point A all the down to the last point then back to point A. I would say for about 3 bucks it's worth the 20 minute ride. You will see Downtown Ybor City, the port of... More

Nice way to travel between downtown and historic Ybor City -- you get to see a good bit of downtown Tampa. Very friendly streetcar drivers. You can buy a ticket at the platform for each stop. They come only every 20 minutes on weekdays and more frequently on weekends - schedules posted near the platform at each stop. As of... More

This trolley was near empty both times we rode it. Not cheap, but nothing is free, I suppose. A good rest from driving, because it went from Ybor to sites downtown.
