Hop aboard the Pelican Hopper, a free, air-conditioned shuttle transportation service provided by the Town in conjunction with Broward County Transit.
Driver Dennis Royes offers a warm hello to customers as they step onto the bus, which takes 45 minutes to make a complete run from Publix Supermarket down to Galt Ocean Mile before heading north to Terra Mar Island and then returning to Publix, the start of the Pelican Hopper's daily route.
The colorful community shuttle bus, which stops in front of Publix at the Village Shopping Center in Sea Ranch Lakes, is a familiar site to Town residents. The shuttle make several round-trip daily visits to Holy Cross Hospital in Fort Lauderdale.
The service is absolutely free to residents and tourists! Riders who later make connections to other BCT routes, however, must pay the appropriate bus fare.
The shuttle, which operates from 9 AM to 5:25 PM Monday thru Thursday, travels around Town every 45 minutes with various stops, including three locations connecting with the Fort Lauderdale Galt/North Beach Community Bus. The bus also operates until 10PM on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
If you are traveling downtown, consider using the shuttle bus instead of driving!
The Pelican Hopper operates as close to its schedule as possible, although traffic conditions may sometimes cause the bus to arrive slightly early or late.
The shuttle is wheelchair accessible in accordance with provisions under the Americans with Disabilities Act. It also comes equipped with a bike rack.
There is no service on New Year's Day, Martin Luther King Jr's Birthday, Presidents’ Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving Day, the day after Thanksgiving and Christmas Day.
