SAN DIEGO, Calif.
In an effort to enhance public and attendee access along the Embarcadero, a new bayfront shuttle service has launched. The Big Bay Bayfront Shuttle connects major attractions and businesses along the San Diego Bay and will include stops at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront, Marriott Marquis Hotel and Marina, Seaport Village, Broadway/Navy Pier, Maritime Museum of San Diego and Sheraton San Diego Hotel and Marina.
“With the San Diego Convetion Center located along the route, the shuttle allows our attendees to take a break from their meetings and conveniently experience everything our beautiful bay has to offer,” said Carol Wallace, president and CEO of the San Diego Convention Center Corp.
The shuttle will be operating on a 14-week trial period this summer from Memorial Day to Labor Day. If it’s well received, the transportation will become an annual summertime offering.
Rides on the shuttle will be included in the cost of parking at the Convention Center, the Hilton San Diego Bayfront and Navy Pier’s parking facilities, resulting in a $1 increase in daily rates to fund the project. All other passengers can purchase tickets for $1 per day at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront and Marriott Marquis and Marina’s concierge desks or Destination Travel in Seaport Village.
