Wave down a shuttle and hop aboard

 

 

Do you want a ride around Port Aransas or all the way to Corpus Christi and back for a low fare?

The public transit system is offered and operated by the City of Port Aransas and the Corpus Christi Regional Transportation Authority.

The trolley

The B-Line’s “Route 94 Trolley,” which offers reduced fares for eligible seniors and others for as low as 25 cents, runs a nine-stop route around Port Aransas daily from 10 a.m. until about 6 p.m.

Stops along the route are: Cinnamon Shore, Pioneer RV Park, Access Road 1A, the Leonabelle Turnbull Birding Center, Roberts Point Park, the University of Texas Marine Science Institute, Horace Caldwell Pier, Port Aransas Post Office and Mustang Beach Airport. Folks should go to one of those locations and not try to wave the trolley down between its regular stops, according to City Hall.

Fares vary. For specifics, call (361) 749-4111 or email city@cityofportaransas.org.

All trips must be scheduled at least one day in advance.
