The City of Port Moody will launch a new, summer-time shuttle bus service on Friday, June 1, 2018. Residents and visitors will be able to catch the free Shoreline Shuttle on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays between June 1 and September 3, 2018.
“The Shoreline Shuttle will connect Inlet Centre, Rocky Point Park, and Moody Centre, stopping near popular destinations like the Recreation Complex, Public Library, Eagle Ridge Hospital, Inlet Park, and the Port Moody Arts Centre,” says Mayor Mike Clay. “It’s also going to help people access our business areas, including Clarke Street, St. Johns Street, Suter Brook Village, Newport Village, and Heritage Mountain Shoppers Village. I encourage our residents to leave their cars at home, and hop on the free Shoreline Shuttle this summer.”
The Shoreline Shuttle will be in service from 4pm to midnight on Fridays, 1pm to midnight on Saturdays, and 1pm to 10pm on Sundays. The service schedule will be adjusted for holidays (Canada Day, B.C. Day, Labour Day), and select special events (Golden Spike Days Festival, RibFest, Car-Free Day). The bus will travel in a one-way loop, leaving Rocky Point Park approximately every 30 minutes during operating hours.
Riders can hop on or off the shuttle at the following locations:
#1 Rocky Point Park (2800-block Murray Street)
#2 Kyle Street (St. Johns Street at Kyle Street)
#3 Clarke/Douglas (Clarke Street at Douglas Street)
#4 Moody Street (St. Johns Street at Moody Street)
