The Cross-Bay Ferry today announced that it is offering a new promotion on Wednesdays and Thursdays during January and February for riders to buy one ticket and get one ticket free, and a new promotion to allow kids aged 12 and under to ride free with an adult. The promotions will allow the ferry to better serve customer demand for its mid-week service, build on its Community Partner Program, and mark another step in the ferry’s development as a long-term transportation option for travel across the bay.
The BOGO promotion allows one customer to get up to three free tickets with the purchase of three full-price tickets on Wednesdays and Thursdays during January and February, excluding days of Tampa Bay Lightning home games. The days that the offer is valid includes Jan. 25, Feb. 1-2, Feb. 8, Feb. 15-16, Feb. 22, and Feb. 25-26. To redeem the BOGO offer, customers must use the promo code “CROSSBAYWEEKDAY” when purchasing their tickets online or in person. Tickets are available for purchase online at www.thecrossbayferry.com/st-
Similarly, the kids-ride-free promotion allows up to two kids aged 12 and under to ride free with an adult on Wednesdays and Thursdays during January and February, excluding days of Tampa Bay Lightning home games. The valid dates are the same as for the BOGO promotion. To redeem the offer, customers must enter the promo code “KIDSRIDEFREE23” when purchasing their tickets online or in person. All children must have their own ticket and be accompanied by an adult.
“Our new BOGO and kids-ride-free promotions will offer substantial savings for people looking for mid-week travel options,” said Matt Miller, president, HMS Ferries, the company that operates the ferry. “We are excited to welcome even more new riders to the Cross-Bay Ferry with these promotions.”
The Cross-Bay Ferry is a regional collaboration between Hillsborough County, city of Tampa, city of St. Petersburg, and Florida Department of Transportation.
