Riding the street car is fun, reminiscent of the old days when streetcars ran in the streets of cities and many towns. The line is fairly short and only serves the Channelside and Ybor city areas. There are many attractions and restaurants on the line....More

Didn't go very far. Thought we'd see more of the area. It had A/C so that was a plus. Don't feel the need to do it again.

It is $2.50 for all day but you need exact change. Reminded me of the cable cars in San Francisco. Good way to get around when without a car. Lady who drove did not have much enthusiasm for her job. Could have been friendlier.

A fun way to get around the city. If staying at the waterside in Tampa, the trolley goes to Ybor City.

Nowhere on their website does it state that the ticket is only good for the date of purchase, or that they expire. So, I would say that they are still good.
