Summer Shuttle Update (July 2022)
A sure sign that Coronado is recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic is the return of the Free Summer Shuttle along Orange Avenue. Join the City, supporters and sponsors of the program at the kick-off event on Sunday, June 6, at 1 pm at Spreckels Park near the Coronado Public Library.
The complimentary service was launched in 2013 but was discontinued last year. The classic VW bus-themed artwork is back and has been updated to reflect face covering mandates on public transit. Masks that fully cover mouths and noses are required to board the Free Summer Shuttle.
Beginning June 6, residents, guests, and local business operators will see the familiar Free Summer Shuttle buses along the Metropolitan Transit System's 904 Route from the Coronado Shores and City Hall to the Coronado Ferry Landing and Coronado Island Marriott Resort and Spa. The shuttles run in 15-minute intervals and is free to ride. The program is funded by the City and Discover Coronado underwrites the cost to design and install the unique and colorful wrapping.
