What is it?
HARTFlex is an on-demand, curbside van-based service open to all
passengers. HARTFlex has the advantages of a traditional fixed bus route
with the convenience of curbside pickup.
How do I use it?
Flex offers the convenience of door-to-door service by reservation, and the flexibility of walk-up service from a bus stop. From any place in your neighborhood zone to any other destination within your zone, HARTFlex will get you there!
For guaranteed seat availability, reservations are encouraged. No standees are allowed on the HARTFlex van.
Reservations should be made from two hours to three days in advance of your trip. Alternate times will be suggested if the van is already booked.
To make a one-way or round-trip reservation, call 813-254-4278 during the following days and times:
Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. *Previously was 6 p.m.
Saturday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Customers who book a reservation and do not arrive for their
trip or do not cancel their reservation at least two hours beforehand will be
considered a no-show. Customers who receive four no-shows in any 30-day period
will be suspended from HARTFlex reservations for two weeks. These customers may
continue to use walk-up service where available.
Walk-up service is available by waiting at a designated HART bus stop, which are marked with a Flex decal. The driver will drop you off at any other designated HART stop along the route in the same direction. HARTFlex vans are now equipped with bike racks and folded bikes are welcome aboard HARTFlex vehicles.
$1 per trip; same price for adults, seniors, persons with disabilities and youth
$2 for a 1-Day Unlimited Ride farecard sold on the van
HART 1-Day and 31-Day Unlimited Ride farecards accepted
