Tampa Int’l Airport Ground Transportation

DID YOU KNOW??

You can actually get a clean, safe, reliable, licensed, professionally driven and operated town car at the Tampa International Airport for about the same or less then a taxi? 

1-4 passengers = $65 and 5-7 passengers = $85

YEP! Sure can! 

Now them there are some nice rides!

Bay Area Town Car Service, better known as BATS Taxi & Town Car, has been in business for 35 years and we can pick you up at the Tampa and St. Petersburg/Clearwater Airports.

We can take you anywhere, but we are the ones to call if you are coming in to the Tampa Bay area Airports and going to the beaches.

1-4 passengers = $65 and 5-7 passengers = $85

*Note: 4 passengers with excessive luggage requiring an SUV= $85

So especially if you are going to St. Pete Beach FL, Treasure Island FL, Madeira Beach FL, Redington Beach FL, Indian Rocks Beach FL or Clearwater Beach FL…. BATS is the one to call!

Please call in advance as we pre-schedule our drivers just for you!

Hey Tampa Bay! Is Your Taxi or Car Service Legal?

If you are taking a Taxi or Car Service in the Tampa Bay Area it must be legally operated and licensed.

If it isn’t…..

It isn’t Cool, It Isn’t “Rad” or “Bad”, “Sick” or “Sweet”

Possibly, Very Possibly….It isn’t Safe

It’s Wrong….On numerous levels

EXAMPLE:

In Pinellas County, FL the St. Petersburg/Clearwater side of Tampa Bay, the following is an example of the types of Permit/Licensing Stickers which you should see on the Taxi or Car Service you are hiring.
In the picture below, which is the Towncar I drive for BATS Taxi & Towncar Service you will notice 3 Permit Stickers on the rear windshield. You may click on the photo for a larger image. There will also be some Permit Stickers on the front windshield.  Below I will show you all of them for our area.

Close up of the rear Permit Stickers

*White Permit Sticker with 9/30/15 is for the City of St. Petersburg, FL/Pinellas

**Green Permit Sticker with the Plane is for the Tampa International Airport

***Yellow Permit Sticker is for operating legally in Hillsborough County

Front Windshield Permit Stickers

***Notice the Yellow Permit Sticker below states that it is “Only Valid With Current Annual Inspection Sticker On Rear Window.” 

Legal vehicles and Services MUST be Inspected and Certified Safe by Law

Legally Licensed, Background Checked and Approved Drivers

Below are my personal ID Badges for Pinellas and Hillsborough Counties

IF, your Driver does not display or if they cannot show you these badges for the area or areas he/she serves, then they simply are not operating legally…..Period.

 ID Badges and Permit Stickers must be renewed yearly

 Simply having the badges is not enough….they MUST go along with the Company you are driving for or contracted to, which is on file with the proper local authorities.

IF, your driver has these ID Badges but are transporting you in their personal vehicle, they are not legal.

Again, they must have valid Permit Stickers like those pictured above.

Think about that. If there is no paper trail….there is no accountability

(I am not saying they look good I am saying they are legal)

:)

Below is my Hillsborough County Public Transit Commission ID Badge. Background check is performed by the Hillsborough County Sheriffs Department and we the driver pays the $100 fee.

Below Is my ID Badge as issued by the St. Petersburg, FL Police Department

Background Check performed by the St. Petersburg Police Department and we the drivers pay the $90 fee.

Bottom line…..

If the Taxi or Car Service you are in are not legal….

If your driver isn’t legal……

  No paper trail…….No accountability.

Think About That

Thank you for stopping by, Lance Greene
