St Pete/Tampa Expert - answer this please

Travelling to stpete in March. Was NOT going to rent a car. Staying at a conod on the beach. Is there a bus service that can bring me to Busch Gardens, or do I have to rent a car for the day? Also, what is the policy for children (age 4) on buses, regarding carseats? Thanks in advance.

There are express buses that shuttle between Tampa and St. Pete. But nothing to BG. It used to be that you could get car seats for free from the FL. Div. Motor Vehicles but don't know if that's still the case. It is definitely the law in FL as well as all states in the US. While at the beach you can rely on the beach shuttle or walk.

You will need to rent a car to get to Busch Gardens, but it is not difficult to get to. I'm heading there tomorrow. The weather here is just too wonderful to believe. You will LOVE our beaches. They're great!

Tell me about the trolley. We are staying at the Clearwater Hilton. Thanks.

I believe it is $1.50 one way but I think there are $3 day passes. Don't know if there are week long or multi-day passes. It goes from Clearwater on the north end down to passe-a-grille on the south. It's not the quickest nor most reliable thing -- it's more of a beach thing. It is painted very nautical and you will likely see some folks in swimsuits. It is air-conditioned.

Here's the route:

Thanks Tandoori Girl. After looking att the schedule I think I will rent a car, but the trolley will be a good choice if my family wants to split up and go different directions.
