South Whittier Summer Beach Bus Service Begins May 28

The South Whittier Summer Beach Bus service is starting early this year. Beginning Memorial Day, Monday, May 28, residents of South Whittier and other unincorporated areas in the vicinity will have the opportunity to climb aboard the Summer Beach Bus and go to Long Beach, Supervisor Don Knabe announced today.

The Summer Beach Bus program provides the community with an affordable way to travel in air-conditioned, wheelchair-accessible buses to the beach and back during the hot summer months. A Summer Beach Bus ride costs children and adults $2.00 per round-trip. For senior citizens (age 60 and older) and people with disabilities, the service is $1.00 per round-trip. Children under 12 years of age must be accompanied by a fare-paying adult.

Passengers traveling from South Whittier can board the Summer Beach Bus on selected days in front of the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic on Amber Valley Drive, in front of the Sherriff’s STAR Center on Colima Road, or at Amelia Mayberry Park at the Sunshine Shuttle bus stop on Meyer Road. Starting May 15, 2007, through September 3, 2007, you may call toll-free (888) 769-1122 or visit for more information on specific dates, times, and fares.

The South Whittier Summer Beach Bus service is funded by Los Angeles County Supervisors Gloria Molina and Don Knabe.
