TBARTA Launches MyRide

Feb. 12, 2015

Finding transportation options can be difficult, especially when you have specialized needs or requirements. Do you know where to get that information?

With TBARTA's myRide service, you can explore over 250 local and regional providers of transportation services — from on-demand medical transport to wheelchair-accessible vans with just one call — or one click. Listings also include local bus systems, and options for statewide travel.

The myRide service is made possible by a federal grant from the Veterans Administration (VA) and Federal Transit Administration (FTA). The goal is to ease information access for veterans and military families, but myRide is available to everyone, free.

In partnership with The Crisis Center of Tampa Bay, myRide is available on the phone. The Crisis Center provides social service and crisis help, which can also be accessed via myRide.

A live chat feature, with a direct connection to a myRide specialist, is anticipated for Fall 2015.

Additional features elsewhere on the TBARTA website include park and ride lot information for Hillsborough and Pinellas Counties, route planning by car, bus, biking, or walking, and complete information about TBARTA’s transportation studies ongoing and complete.
