Hurricane Evacuation Routes
Moving You To Safety
During a hurricane evacuation, Hillsborough Area Regional Transit Authority buses run special evacuation routes for people who need transportation to shelters. These routes are provided to assist people who have no other options for getting to safety, and should be considered only as a last resort. HART and the Hillsborough County Office of Emergency Management urge you to make arrangements now for the safety of your family should a storm force you from your home. HART emergency routes are designed to simply move people from low ground to higher ground.

If a major storm threatens our area, you should plan for the possibility of service interruptions. To minimize inconvenience to our customers, we will announce the need to interrupt service as early in the day as possible, and will work to restore service just as soon as it is safe to do so.
Don't wait for the last minute to make arrangements or to implement your evacuation plan as you may find yourself stranded. Contact relatives, friends, faith-based groups or other organizations for assistance with shelter and evacuation.
However, if you are in need of public transportation before a storm, here's what you need to know to use HART evacuation bus service.
