The so-called Big Bay Shuttle will start up at 10 a.m. and run on a loop from the Embarcadero to Harbor Island. The shuttles are marked with a “Big Bay” logo and operate with compressed natural gas, making them more environmentally friendly, according to port officials.
The cost for each rider is $3 per day, port officials said.
Stops will be made at the Hilton Bayfront San Diego, the San Diego Marriott Marquis & Marina, the Manchester Grand Hyatt, Seaport Village, Broadway Pier/Navy Pier, the Wyndham San Diego Bayside, the Maritime Museum of San Diego and the Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina on Harbor Island.
The shuttle will service the eight stops through Monday, Sept. 2, running from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday to Thursday, and from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
The Big Bay Shuttle is being operated through a partnership with Ace Parking Management, according to the port. The agency conducted a four-month trial run last year in which 20,000 passengers rode the Big Bay Shuttle.
