Getting around the Port of San Diego's Embarcadero is about to get a lot easier. Visitors and residents alike will soon be able to enjoy the convenience of the Big Bay Shuttle service, which is being operated through a partnership with Ace Parking Management.
The shuttle will run on a loop, providing easy access from Downtown San Diego to the attractions along the Embarcadero, and on to Harbor Island.
This will be the first official year of the Big Bay Shuttle, after a limited trial program in 2012. After receiving great response from the trial program, the Board of Port Commissioners decided to seek an operator for a shuttle program.
From Friday, May 24, through Monday, September 2, 2013, the shuttle will service eight locations at a cost of $3 per day per rider:
Hours of operation are:
Tickets may be purchased at each of the stops. The shuttle does not stop at the San Diego International Airport.
The shuttle will run for 14 weeks over the summer, from Memorial Day through Labor Day weekend. Shuttles are clearly marked, adorned with the Big Bay logo. All of the shuttles will be "green" compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicles and accessible for people with disabilities.
The shuttle's trial run in 2012 was extremely successful, carrying more than 20,000 visitors and residents from May to September. Riders, as well as Port businesses, expressed their support for and appreciation of the service.
The service meets the California Coastal Commission's recommendations for public access to the waterfront along with public transportation options.
