APRIL 10-11, 2021 | TAMPA BAY
Getting around Tampa Bay is a breeze – whether traveling by wheels, water, or your own two feet. The Tampa Riverwalk runs 2.4 miles through the heart of downtown and is reserved strictly for pedestrian traffic. Ride the free TECO Streetcars to easily venture between downtown and Ybor City. Bright yellow Pirate Water Taxis provide day-long hop-on/hop-off transportation along Garrison Channel and the Hillsborough River. Rideshare services are a popular way to get around, as is the Downtowner, an app-accessed free service powered by electric vehicles. Finally, HART buses provide low-cost access from Tampa International Airport into downtown.
The Tampa Riverwalk
For getting around the downtown campus, the Tampa Riverwalk, made possible by Friends of the Riverwalk, a nonprofit organization working in tandem with the City of Tampa, provides a walkable path that connects the key venues of WrestleMania 36 Week. Amalie Arena is a 0.3 mile (~6 minute) walk from the Convention Center and Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park is 0.6 mile (~13 minutes) walk from the Convention Center. For directions and a map of the Riverwalk, please click here.
Shared Electric Scooter Pilot Program
The City of Tampa has engaged four of the nation’s largest shared motorized scooter vendors to support a year-long pilot program. The motorized scooters will allow people to quickly and easily move short distances and help commuters access public transit stops that are several miles away. These vehicles can replace short-distance car rides, which would help to reduce traffic levels and improve downtown mobility.
The objective of the shared motorized scooter pilot program is to introduce a new, low-cost method of transportation to enhance mobility and address the “last-mile” needs of downtown Tampa. The pilot will help the City gather data necessary to develop a multi-faceted, long-term mobility plan that satisfies the community’s needs and encourages strong public-private partners.
To ease traffic congestion, provide sustainable alternatives, and lessen the impacts of WrestleMania 36 Week on the environment, we recommend that fans utilize the following public transportation options to get around the downtown campus.
