HART regular transportation routes suspended as evacuation bus routes begin

Hart Evacuation Bus routes begin Saturday morning, and regular routes suspended until further notice.

HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla. -- The Hillsborough Area Regional Transit Authority (HART) is suspending their regular transit routes until further notice based on the current path of Hurricane Irma. 

This includes the TECO Line Streetcar System on Saturday, Sept. 9 and Sunday, Sept. 10. 

At 7 a.m., evacuees can begin using the HART Emergency Evacuation Bus system, which will shuttle people between four area shelters. 

Shelters included:

  • Smith Middle School
  • Pizzo Elementary School
  • Middleton High School
  • Shields Middle School

Anyone who needs transportation to these shelters can find the nearest bus route here, or call the HARTinfo Line at 813-254-4278. 

Look for any of the blue and white stop signs marking Emergency Evacuation Bus Routes, or flag down buses along any of their nine routes. 

Those needing special medical needs can contact the Emergency Operations Center at 813-272-5900, and anyone outside the emergency routes will be served by Hillsborough County School District buses.
