Enjoy the Ride

Seaside is a holiday town. The once hidden gem has become an iconic place to stay or visit. 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, assistant 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. Visitors can choose to have their vehicle valeted or ride a free shuttle when making a trip to Seaside.

Also new this season, the one-way traffic in Central Square will reverse on March 11. “It just makes sense,” says Jeremy Barnes, director of security for SCDC. “The additional parking in Seaside has always been on Smolian Circle. Our current one-way traffic in Central Square will reverse to help direct vehicles to either valet, or find additional parking on Smolian Circle.”

Shuttle rides begin
March 11 – Sept. 3, 2019
