Marina del Rey’s free Beach Shuttle will return to service beginning Memorial Day Weekend, providing residents and visitors with easy access to Fisherman’s Village, restaurants, shopping and coastal recreation. The Beach Shuttle, provided by LA County Supervisor Don Knabe and Playa Vista, will operate Friday-Sunday and holidays from May 27 to September 5.
“The Beach Shuttle is a great way for riders to enjoy all the amenities of Marina del Rey,” said Supervisor Knabe. “The shuttle not only runs during the weekend, it provides service during one of my favorite summertime events, the Summer Classical Concert Series at Burton Chace Park.”
Beach Shuttle operating hours are:
- Friday and Saturday from 10a.m. to 10p.m.
- Sundays and holidays from 10a.m. to 8p.m.
- Thursday night from 5p.m. to 10p.m., during the Summer Classical Concert Series at Burton Chace Park (July 7 and 21, August 4 and 18)
- September 25 from 10a.m. to 6p.m., during the Abbot Kinney Festival
The Beach Shuttle runs every 30 minutes, starting at 10:15 am from Playa Vista to major points of interest, including the Waterside Shopping Center, Mother’s Beach, Venice Beach Pier and seven Marina del Rey WaterBus boarding locations. There is a one hour pause in service between 3:15 and 4:15 pm.
Beach Shuttle buses are powered by compressed natural gas, an odorless, cleaner burning fuel that generates fewer exhaust and greenhouse gas emissions than gasoline- or diesel-powered buses. The buses also accommodate bikes for easy commuting between rider destinations.
