Cross Bay Ferry

The Cross Bay Ferry is a regional effort designed to lay the foundation for permanent ferry service. It is a collaboration between St. Petersburg, Tampa, Hillsborough County, Pinellas County and the Florida Department of Transportation.

When in season, the Cross-Bay Ferry operates between the Vinoy Basin in downtown St. Petersburg and the Tampa Convention Center in downtown Tampa.  The Ferry operated for a fourth season beginning in November, 2020, building upon the strong ridership and success of the first three years.  

Customer surveys have been taken continuously throughout the project to improve service and gain better insight in how future permanent service can be designed and operated.
