The Marion Transit Center serves as a pickup, drop-off and transfer location for 15 local HART routes, 11 Commuter Express routes, the In-Town Trolley and the inter-county Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority Routes 100X and 300X.
The Center is located at 1211 N. Marion Street in downtown Tampa and sits on 1.23 acres just west of Tampa’s historic Oaklawn Cemetery. The facility consists of two structures: a larger main building housing a patron lobby, customer service area, drivers’ lounge, and office space; and a clock tower with a ground floor concession area. A pedestrian-friendly courtyard, decorated with tile mosaics and lined with cast iron lampposts, connects the two structures.
Service and convenience for transit users is a high priority for HART, therefore many patron amenities were built into the Marion Transit Center. The site’s hourglass shape, along with its trellis-covered walkways, allow for shorter walks between buses, and shelter from sun and rain. The canopy was designed like a garden arbor. Planter walls throughout the site provide ample seating.
