CityPASS program starts in the Tampa Bay area May 20

Tampa Bay

CityPASS for this area gets under way today

CityPASS, a prepaid ticket booklet that offers discounted admissions to the area's top attractions, starts today.

The booklet costs $119 for adults for admission to Busch Gardens, the Florida Aquarium, Lowry Park Zoo and the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. Buyers also get entry to either the Chihuly Collection or the Museum of Science & Industry. Booklets for children ages 3 to 9 are $99.

CityPASS is valid for nine days starting with the first day of use. The passes reflect a savings of $70.24 off the regular price of an adult ticket to all attractions — or a discount of about 37 percent.

The Tampa Bay area is the 11th North American market to offer the CityPASS. Others are New York City, Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Seattle, Toronto and Southern California.

The booklets are available online at citypass.com and starting today will be sold at the attractions, their websites and on travel websites such as Travelocity and Expedia.
