We are looking to move to the Tampa area in the near future. After some research we kind of like the Wesley Chapel/Land O' Lakes area. We are still open to looking in other towns around Tampa. I know a transfer might be tough but either way.... what towns have city routes? I don't think Wesley Chapel does so I'm trying to get an idea of what towns I should/can look into to transfer to. Thanks for any info!

There are very few city routes here, almost all are rural. To be honest, the only time I've seen a city carrier was in the Hyde Park area of Tampa in the time I was down here. Family lived in Pinellas and always had rural delivery (St. Pete Beach and Tyrone areas).

Husband worked in Hillsborough as an RCA when we moved here, after being an RCA up north for 4 years. Worked out of a very large PO in Tampa, something like 60 routes came out of the building, and no city carriers among them. We lived in the Brandon/Valrico area at the time, no city carriers. Even the malls here use CBUs, which was a change from up north.

Can't tell you the last time I saw a carrier walking a route, probably was when I worked in Hyde Park, and if there was a way, I'm sure that PO would love to change that to a rural route, but it would be near impossible to do.

Yeah I noticed there is a lot of rural delivery around there. City carriers here in Missouri deliver to CBU's and we have some routes that are all driving. Checking on cities to transfer to I still noticed quite a few offices still had city delivery close to Tampa but figuring out which of those offices closest to Wesley Chapel/Land O' Lakes still do is what I'm searching out for
