Default Casino Transportation?

Can someone tell me if there's a shuttle that takes the senior's from The Villages to the Hard Rock Casino in Tampa? If so, I would like some information on it, cost, how often it runs, etc.

We rented a place for my elderly father for three months this winter and he likes to gamble, but we don't want him driving.

Thank you!

Look for AAA day trips. The Village of Virginia Trace web site http://virginiatrace.com/ has the AAA day trip calendar that has casino day trips.

Is there another bus besides the Lamers to get Villages to Hard Rock - leaving from the Villages?

None of the bus companies are giving the freeplay or meal vouchers anymore. I wrote to Hard Rock to ask why, and this was their response just a week ago:

"Our Bus Program is going in a new direction. All guest offers (whether someone rides on the bus or drives here) will be based upon each guests individual play; and our new Wild Card program is now more customized to meet each guests playing style."

I would guess this may cause a lot of people to quit going on the bus......
