HART trasnportation is a great way to get around. There are also more services than just the standard "city buses" as you can ride the streetcar from Ybor through Channelside to Downtown and back, trolley system all around Downtown, Hyde Park, and Davis Island, HART Plus, and more.
Pros: There are a lot of routes and stops, buses are clean, rates are great, buses are on time.
