Flamingo Fares is the new way to pay your transit fare in the Tampa Bay area.

The new and improved Flamingo Fares features:

Expanded transit fare options (daily, monthly, etc.)

Save as you ride (Instead of buying passes in advance you earn them as you go. You'll never pay more than a day pass in a day, or a month pass in a calendar month)

Easy account access and pass purchasing (online, mobile, and in-store)

Balance protection for registered cards

Auto reload so you'll never be without fare

One way to pay for Tampa Bay

Tampa Bay counties currently participating in Flamingo Fares: Hernando (TheBus), Hillsborough (HART), Pasco (PCPT), and Pinellas (PSTA/Jolley Trolley).

Flock this way! Register your Flamingo Fares account at www.FlamingoFares.com.

The Flamingo Fares app was designed for use on a smartphone device. Attempting to use the app on other mobile devices (tablet, iPad, etc.) may result in payment failure, requiring an alternative payment method

What’s New

Version 4.050

Wallet Suppression: Wallet suppression is a function that blocks Apple Wallet, Google Wallet, or any other digital wallet from launching from NFC-enabled phones at the time of fare payment. This allows for the Flamingo Fares reader to properly validate the customer’s e-fare QR code.

Get It Together .___.

The qr hasn’t scanned in over a month on the bus. Don’t get me wrong, I’m lucky the bus drivers are nice enough to let us ride free when the “tap again” error keeps showing up but still, cmon now!

Doesn’t work

The app clearly needs some attention because it never works. It’s not just me but just about everyone that I see use the app get the “Tap Again” message. When I had the card it was great… when the machine worked. However after loosing the card and trying to use the app it is extremely frustrating. What makes it even worse is HART bus drivers in Tampa are the rudest incompetent non-customer service driven people in the world. When I call Flamingo fares customer service…if I can get anyone… they want me to come to one of their offices to fix the problem. That’s completely ridiculous because if I’m riding the bus to work during the weekdays that means I would have to take time off from work to fix a problem they created. And they won’t mail you another card. Even more ridiculous!!! JUST THROW THE WHOLE SYSTEM AWAY!!!

This app worked for 2 months then it started auto reversing my debit card loads ; I checked with the bank & that is what I was told. Flamingo assured me the bank was blocking charge but after talking w/ my bank I was told it was them auto reversing the charge.
Totally absurd & then when I tried to reset the app it tells me my flamingo card can’t access transit account. So my discount card is unable to be listed to my account. It tells me my device (iPhone doesn’t have a card associated with app). If I create a card then it won’t feature my discount. And still waiting for a follow up return call.
