Tampa Bay Area Transportation

Airports:
The closest major airport to the Gulfport campus is the Tampa International Airport, which is served by most major carriers. A much smaller, but closer, airport is the St. Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport. Allegiant Air provides limited passenger service into this airport.

Ground Transportation:
Due to the lack of convenient mass transit, we strongly encourage you to consider renting a vehicle while in the Tampa Bay area. Our Gulfport campus is about 45 minutes from the Tampa International Airport. Many hotels are approximately 20 minutes from campus. Having to depend upon taxi service could become costly.

Super Shuttle is available for transportation between the airport and the hotel.

Bats Taxi offers transportation between the airport and the hotel, and the hotel and campus. Their phone number is 727-367-3702.
