Clearwater to Sarasota without a car!?

Does anyone know how we (two people) can get to visit Sarasota from Clearwater without a car? Buses seem to be very scarce but perhaps there is one that goes? Is there a perhaps a ferry we can take from somewhere near to Clearwater? There must be some way of getting around! We are to be there for 9 days in early November. Thanks to anyone who may have a solution.

Unfortunately Florida doesn't have the network of public buses like the UK. The best might be this service which will do Tampa to Sarasota:


But when you get to Sarasota you then have to rely on the bus system there to get around.

By the time you factor in the cost and all the waiting around, a car rental will be the best way.

Renting a car will be much more convenient, and less costly than some options. Very easy area to navigate.

You could try Greyhound Bus Lines.

Quick Google look found this, but I have no idea how much it may cost... http://www.blueskylimo.net/

There is no regularly scheduled, public bus/train that goes between the two areas.
