By far, the best transportation option from TPA to St. Pete Beach. Reasonably priced, prompt and no stops. Adrian was waiting for us at baggage claim and we were at the hotel in 25 minutes. He was great!

Prompt and on time service. Very friendly and knowledgeable of the area. Flat rate of $39 to St. Pete/Clearwater Airport beats any other taxi service around.

Thank you for using BATS. The flat rate may increase in the future as the PIE airport will soon charge per trip fees on ground transportation operators.

Hi Jane, For online booking, you may book up to a month in advance. You may also call dispatch and book as far in advance as you would like. Should you choose to use BATS or not, we hope you have a great trip!
