The easiest way to get to Tampa is through the Tampa International Airport (TPA). 18 airlines fly to TPA. The airport is approximately 9 miles (15-20 min driving) away from the convention center. Shared van, rental car, limousine, hotel shuttle, or taxi service are available at the airport. A flat fee of $25 is expected for the taxi service from airport to downtown. More economically, you may take Hillsborough Area Regional Transit Authority (HART) route 30, which runs every 30 minutes between the airport and downtown. The entire bus trip takes approximately 40 minutes. The HART fee schedule can be found at http://www.gohart.org/ride_guide/fares/fares.html.
Shuttle services between the Tampa Convention Center and the outlining hotels will be provided and sponsored by
