Free shuttle launches in downtown Tampa

"The 12 electric vehicles took to Tampa's streets offering free rides to anywhere within the downtown district, which spans from the north end of Harbor Island to Interstate 275, and from the University of Tampa area to the Channel District. The only tips exchanged are advice from drivers, who are also trained Tampa tour guides."

 

Downtowner Shuttle Service Operator Selected

"Downtown Tampa's highly anticipated, complimentary shuttle service is one step closer to its launch. Tampa Downtown Partnership (TDP) has entered into an agreement with Florida-based company, The Tampa Downtowner Group, LLC as the service operator. Downtowner is a rapidly growing shuttle operator with service in South Florida, Newport Beach, CA, and Aspen, CO. The agreement comes after two years of research, planning, fundraising and the selection process of an operator."
