Pelican Hopper Shuttle

Under the current COVID-19 environment, it is in the best interest of our riders and shuttle drivers to curtail the schedule. Until further notice, the Pelican Hopper will operate on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9AM to 5:30 PM.


The route will operate its normal weekday schedule to the Sea Ranch Center, Galt Ocean Mile Area and Holy Cross Hospital.


Effective Monday, Nov. 2 the Hopper route will begin a temporary detour, eliminating its turn around in Terra Mar Subdivision, continuing north and turning around Island Shoppes in Pompano (SE12th Street).  See route COVID/Detour Route Map 


NOTE: Broward County Transit (BCT) has suspended all fares on BCT bus routes until further notice. The Hopper only picks up passengers at designated stops and BCT bus stops – “No Wave and Ride.” 

The service is free to residents and tourists! Riders who later make connections to other routes, however, must pay the appropriate bus fare.

Route & Stops

The daily shuttle takes about 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, which stops in front of Publix at the Village Shopping Center in Sea Ranch Lakes, is a familiar site to Town residents, making several round-trip daily visits to nearby Holy Cross Hospital, except on Sundays. 

Track The Shuttle Using Free App

The Tracker App can be downloaded free from the IPhone App or Google Play stores, as well as desktop computers.  


The shuttle, which operates from 9 a.m. to 5:25 p.m. Monday through 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 10 p.m. 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.
