Coronado’s Free Summer Shuttle Start Date Delayed

UPDATE June 6, 2023 from the City of Coronado:

City of Coronado Delays June 11 Start Date of Free Summer Shuttle

The City of Coronado has delayed its Free Summer Shuttle June 11, 2023 launch date due to a bus driver work stoppage against the Metropolitan Transit System’s contracted service provider. MTS provides the Summer Shuttle service in Coronado per an agreement with the city. The work stoppage is impacting the MTS bus routes and paratransit services in Coronado. The city is monitoring the stoppage and is in communication with MTS to launch the Free Summer Shuttle, once MTS confirms when they are able to provide the service to the city.

For updates on the MTS and the First Transit Work Stoppage please check the MTS website here.


Unknown Start Date through Monday, September 4
Every 15 minutes / Seven Days a Week
9am to 9:30pm,
Until 10:30pm Fridays and Saturdays

The City of Coronado’s free Summer Shuttle will begin service on June 11, 2023 is delayed due to the MTS strike. The popular service helps both residents and visitors get around town during Coronado’s busy summer season when public parking is limited.

Four brightly wrapped buses will run through Labor Day. On July 4, special bus service for Cays residents will once again be offered. As parking is at a premium on the Fourth of July, this free transportation option will provide a convenient alternative to driving for Cays residents.
