Streetcar Station Stops

The TECO Line Streetcar System currently offers 11 station stops along its 2.7-mile route. Five stops are located in Tampa’s Channel District, four are in historic Ybor City and two are downtown. The stations reflect the design characteristics of the district where they are located and incorporate public art elements that celebrate the lives of Tampa and Ybor City workers.

The Channel District station stops have a contemporary design with stainless steel roofs, aqua marine terrazzo, sky blue soffits and wave-shaped benches. Three of the Channelside stations include public art elements – hand designed terrazzo orange crates recall the importance of the citrus industry and function as seating options.

Ybor City station stops capture the look of old fashioned train sheds. The architectural elements include brick, wrought iron, and wood roofs covered with slate shingles. For Ybor City’s station stops, the chairs of cigar factory workers were replicated in bronze. To recall the lector, who was paid by the cigar workers to read from novels and daily newspapers, selections of poetry by Tampa Bay area poets written in English, Spanish and Italian, are engraved on each of the chairs.

Two downtown Tampa station stops, one located at the Dick Greco Plaza transportation center on St. Pete Times Forum Drive between Franklin Street and Florida Avenue, is housed inside a glass and steel dome. Twelve lighted sentinels serve as functional art at this site.  The other, Whiting Station, features a beautiful permanent light display titled "Siteliner" by artist James Woodfill.

Dick Greco Plaza serves as an intermodal facility providing access and connection between pedestrians, streetcars, Hillsborough Area Regional Transit (HART) buses and taxis. Whiting Station, the end of the line in downtown, provides greater access to downtown attractions, hotels and more.  Whiting Station also connects to HART Route 30 service to Tampa International Airport.

Each station stop offers benches, canopies, information kiosks and ticket vending machines.
