There is more to Tampa than just the city itself. With miles of pretty beaches, an energetic nightlife, and great weather, the Tampa Bay area attracts everyone from families to businessmen. Your flight to Tampa will land at Tampa International Airport (TPA), which is near plenty of hotels that you can use as a home base for your vacation.
Thanks in part to its large size, TPA has many convenient transportation options. Once you fly in and deplane, head to the Baggage Claim Level. If you reserved a rental car, find out in advance if your rental company is located on airport property or offsite. On-site companies are found across the walkway in the Red and Blue Baggage Claim areas, while courtesy shuttles for off-site rental companies pick up at the other end of the area. You can grab a taxi curbside outside on that same level. Each end of the baggage claim area has an air conditioned waiting room for limo and shared van passengers to enjoy until your ride gets there.
Local, regional, and charter buses also serve TPA. Hillsborough Regional Transit (HART) has a bus stop at the west end of the Red Baggage Claim by Belt #15. Check the route map and schedule located at the stop for ticket information. Red Coach provides regional bus service from TPA to Miami and Tallahassee; you can board at Ground Transportation Center Blue 2. Passengers using charter buses will find them at Ground Transportation Centers Red 1 and Blue 2.
