The Port of San Diego’s Waterfront Shuttle service will begin this Friday, May 26, 2017 and run through Labor Day, September 4, 2017. Managed by Ace Parking, the summer service will connect San Diego Bay visitors with the waterfront and its businesses.

This will be the sixth season for the popular shuttle, which will operate seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

The Port and Ace Parking have teamed up to offer discounted rides on the Waterfront Shuttle all summer long. Riders who park at the San Diego Convention Center or Hilton Bayfront Ace Parking garages will get a discounted shuttle ticket for $1 per person when they show their parking receipt and up to four people can get this rate with one parking receipt.  This will allow riders to explore the waterfront all day with unlimited shuttle rides from the South Embarcadero to Harbor Island.

Additionally, the Ace Parking garage located at the San Diego Convention Center is offering special rates for the Memorial Day weekend.  Parking will be $6 all day on Friday, May 26; Saturday, May 27 and Sunday, May 28. The offer is not available on Memorial Day.
