St. Pete Transportation

Different travel options to get you from the ferry to your desired destination:


Downtown Looper

The Downtown Looper has been a staple of Downtown St. Pete for over 10 years. It’s run by a not-for-profit corporation and is funded by a collection of local stakeholders that help make the service available. It’s fun, friendly, and passes through all the major parts of downtown that people commonly visit.

  • Service Map
  • Schedule
  • Open Daily 10 am – 5 pm. (Runs till midnight on Friday and Saturday Night)

Central Avenue Trolley

Feeling a bit more adventurous? Consider riding the Central Avenue Trolley. It goes beyond the core of Downtown St. Pete and can be used to visit the shops, restaurants, bars, and breweries located along Central Avenue leading to Tropicana Field. Feeling beachy? This trolley goes all the way to  St. Pete Beach and Pass-A-Grille!

Coast Bike Share

Coast Bike Share is without a doubt the most exhilarating way to move through St. Pete. Not gonna to lie, it takes a solid 5 minutes to download the app and create an account, but don’t let that discourage you! Once your account is set up, all you have to do is punch in your account number & PIN and you’re free to cruise the streets of St. Pete like you’re back in 5th grade again!


UBER and Lyft

These popular ride sharing platforms are last on the list for a reason. Don’t get me wrong, they’re extremely efficient and reliable, but where’s the fun in that?? If you took the ferry to visit St. Pete I hope the only reason you ever use one of these services is because you stayed at a bar longer than you thought, and have to hustle back to the dock before the ferry leaves.
