Transport to Tampa

Hello all

I am staying in North Redington Beach and need to get to the Tampa Bay Lightening hockey arena (and back) but I don't have a car. Any ideas on cost of a taxi/limo or any other ideas besides renting a car?

Thanks

Would be quite an expensive cab ride. The drive is around 45 minutes or so each way.

Other than that, you may want to contact www.batstaxi.com ,maybe if they get enough inquiries, they will if they can fill a van or something. Or you would have to hire a car service, which might be as much as a cab.

Or, if it is a night game, and you have the afternoon to get there on the public buses. There are not many buses that cross the county lines, so it would not be a fun, convenient, or fast way to get there, but you could get there on the bus, then cab back after the game.

www.psta.net for public bus in Pinellas County (Redington)

www.hartline.org for Hillsborough (Tampa)

Look for a car rental location nearby (airport car rental has airport fees added) then do a Priceline bid. Some people reported getting rentals for as little as $17/day.

Avis can usually be found at some Sears stores. Enterprise also may have locations nearby.
