The Seaside Shuttle makes getting around town easy By Kerri Parker
Seaside is a holiday town. The once hidden gem has become a world-renowned destination. Naturally, with an influx of guests and day trippers, traffic can become congested. Not only traffic from vehicles, our town also becomes immersed with bikes throughout the high season.
Enter the Seaside Shuttle.
Did you know you can park and shuttle directly to Seaside for free? It is a short and beautiful scenic route. Catching the shuttle allows you to take in the stunning views of Western Lake, a rare coastal dune lake directly on your path to Seaside.
The Seaside Shuttles run like clockwork, making it easy to catch going to and fro. As a matter of fact, you will meet many Seasiders who work in our town, while taking the shuttle. “I love the shuttle. It is consistent, clean and the drivers are super friendly,” says Aimee Simpson, controller for Seaside Community Development Corp. (SCDC). “I look forward to the season when we have our shuttle service.”
In addition to the free shuttle service, Seaside offers a paid valet service. The valet service area will be located on Central Square near Artful Eye and Ji•Shi Ki•Chn.
Shuttle rides March 9 – Sept. 8, 2020
