Bus Route 275LX Makes Commute to Downtown Tampa Easier Than Ever

One of the best things about living in WaterGrass in the growing community of Wesley Chapel is the proximity to Tampa, which is just a short drive away. Now travel gets even easier (for business or pleasure!), since Hillsborough Area Regional Transit has launched Route 275LX, which connects Pasco County with downtown Tampa, the Westshore area, and Tampa International Airport.

Launched July 1, 2018, this bus route provides hourly service from 6AM-10PM for $2 per trip. The bus offers free Wi-Fi and easy pickup at the HART Park N Ride.

Board the bus at Pasco County Public Transportation Park-n-Ride at Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel in Wiregrass Ranch, 28222 Willet Way, Wesley Chapel. Then enjoy the inexpensive ride, WiFi, and your day in Tampa!

The route is perfect for anyone who works in downtown Tampa, for travel to and from the Tampa International Airport, or if you’d like take advantage of all the shopping, restaurants, and entertainment Tampa has to offer.
