HART Launches Intercounty Route to Tampa Airport

The Hillsborough Area Regional Transit Authority (HART) in Tampa, FL, introduced service July 1 on its first seven-day-a-week intercounty service, an hourly, limited-stop route that terminates at Tampa International Airport.

HART Interim Chief Executive Officer Jeff Seward called the new line “another milestone moment for HART.” He continued, “An effective and accessible public transportation system is critical to enhancing mobility, supporting commerce and improving the vitality of our community. The new Route 275LX, coupled with Route 54 in [neighboring] Pasco County, is another example of HART’s commitment to providing safe and reliable transportation options to the residents of Hillsborough and Pasco counties.”

The Route 275LX connects with a Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority bus at the airport, providing service to neighboring St. Petersburg. The route is funded by Florida DOT as part of the Urban Corridor Project.

The external wrap on HART’s 275LX bus shows the route and emphasizes its connection to Tampa International Airport.
