Collier County’s Popular Beach Buses are Back
Free beach shuttle service starts the day after Thanksgiving

Love going to the beach, but hate trying to find parking during the busy season? Let Collier Area Transit (CAT) take you to the beach.

The popular Beach Buses are back for another busy beach season ready to provide free shuttle service to North Collier beaches, from November 23, 2018 until April 29, 2019.

Cat Beach Bus

The buses will operate from 8 a.m. to 3:10 p.m., then again from 4:30 p.m. to 7:10 p.m., Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays. The Beach Buses will have two routes, stopping at Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park, Vanderbilt Beach, Conner Park and Creekside. The first route will travel on 111th Ave/Immokalee Rd from Creekside to Delnor-Wiggins State Park and the second route will travel from Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park down Gulf Shore Drive, Vanderbilt Beach Road, US 41 to Creekside and back around.

Please note while the shuttle service is free, there is a $2 entrance fee to Wiggins Pass State Park.

If shopping is on the agenda, the Beach Buses will pass by Mercato shopping center, as well as other retail and restaurant locations along U.S. 41

The Beach Buses will offer a ‘flag down’ service, so riders can catch a free ride at any location along the routes.
