Take the Cross-Bay Ferry to a Rays Game
The Cross-Bay Ferry will adjust its schedule to make it easier for fans to use the ferry to attend Tampa Bay Rays games. The Rays are offering discounts on ticket prices to ferry riders.
ST. PETERSBURG/TAMPA – The Tampa Bay Rays and the Cross-Bay Ferry are teaming up to make it easier than ever for Tampa fans to get to Rays games during April – the ferry’s final month operating in Tampa Bay.
Ferry organizers, Rays officials and the Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority announced the news aboard the ferry in St. Petersburg on Wednesday (March 22):
- The Cross-Bay Ferry will adjust its schedule and add special, later runs for fans to connect with the Rays games and return to Tampa after all Rays games in April (except the matinee game on April 21).
- PSTA will provide free rides for ferry passengers between the ferry dock in St. Petersburg and Tropicana Field.
- Fans show their ferry ticket voucher at the Rays box office to receive $10 off Rays tickets purchased the day of the game. After the game, ferry passengers show their ferry ticket voucher at the Central Avenue Trolley stop in front of Ferg’s for their free return trip to the dock.
- The Tampa Streetcar will also provide 50 percent off discounts for daily passes for ferry riders during April to help St. Petersburg residents enjoy Tampa and Ybor City. This will reduce the daily cost from $5 to $2.50 per person.
“This is a fantastic way for Tampa fans to help kick off baseball season in Tampa Bay,” project advisor Ed Turanchik said. “The ferry has been a wonderful addition to this area, and we are thrilled to work with the Rays to support such a fun way for fans to get to games.”
The Cross-Bay Ferry began running in November and is contracted to run through April to test community interest for water transit. Recently, the Cross-Bay Ferry began regular, weekday service and launched a Commuter Value Pass program that comes with free taxi rides home for those who miss the last ferry trip.
