Parking Advisory

As our partners at Water Street Tampa continue to develop the 60 contiguous acres in the neighborhood surrounding AMALIE Arena, we ask for your patience and consideration when planning your visit to cheer on the Lightning or enjoy a concert, event or family show. We are pleased to report that the development project is well underway with a hotel and USF Health's Morsani College of Medicine in the midst of construction while we expect to see groundbreakings on several other projects during the 2018-19 season. Roadways are being realigned, traffic patterns are changing and new transportation options are emerging - all with a vision of creating a more user-friendly environment in the blocks surrounding AMALIE Arena.

As you plan your trip downtown, we aim to keep you informed of these new developments, offering you all you need to know about arriving at AMALIE safe and on time for your game or event.

Amalie Arena Ride Share Pick Up Locations

In an effort to improve fan wait times, and ease the congestion around the arena, we have identified two new ride sharing pick up locations (see detailed descriptions). Click here for more details. 

Tampa Convention Center - Recommended for fans going north or west

  • Short walk heading west on Channelside Dr. away from Amalie Arena and through the tunnel under the Tampa Convention Center. The cars will line up to meet you on the corner of Ashley Dr. and Channelside Dr.

Floirda Aquarium - Recommended for fans going north or east

  • Short walk heading east on Channelside Dr. away from Amalie Arena toward the aquarium. The cars will line up to meet you at the circular 'turn around' just in front of the aquarium entrance.

Please be aware that changes to the Amalie Arena ride share pick up locations will be effective Saturday, November 10, 2018.

Note: The changes being made impact ride share pick up locations ONLY. The drop off location for ride share patrons attending Lightning games or events at Amalie Arena will continue to be the 'Arena Drop Off' circle on the North side of Amalie Arena.
