USF's parking garages, especially Beard Garage and Laurel Garage, typically have parking available and offer regular, convenient Bull Runner service to stops across campus. Lots 18B and 18T, located off Sycamore Drive, also have parking available and serve as good options for those who typically park in the Sun Dome lots. Additionally, after 5:30 p.m. and on weekends, vehicles with valid USF parking permits (except Y) may park out of their designated areas, excluding Resident and Reserved parking spaces.
Hillsborough Area Regional Transit (HART) route changes serving the University of South Florida (USF) Tampa campus
Beginning Sunday, Oct. 8, HART routes 5, 6, and 18, will no longer provide direct service to destinations on the USF Tampa campus.
HART Routes 5 and 6 will be re-routed along the perimeter of campus on East Fletcher Avenue and East Fowler Avenue. Route 18 will be eliminated.
Employees and students will have the option to connect between HART and USF Bull Runner buses using a valid USFCard. On campus destinations with previous direct service provided by HART may require more than one transfer with Bull Runner; please plan accordingly.
USF Parking and Transportation Services will monitor Bull Runner routes and adjust resources to accommodate increases in ridership due to this change.
