If you haven’t ridden the Island Hopper yet, now’s your chance to do it – for free! Every Friday, beginning June 30 and running through September 29, the Island Hopper will be offering “Fare Free Fridays” when passengers can hop aboard anywhere on the route, and as many times as they want, without paying the $1 boarding fee.
NassauTRANSIT’s Island Hopper bus service is regularly-scheduled public transportation running a loop around the northern half of Amelia Island Thursday through Monday from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., as well as on holidays. The ride only costs $1 per boarding – except on Fare Free Fridays!
The Island Hopper departs from Fernandina Beach City Hall at 10 a.m. and makes a loop down Atlantic Avenue to Main Beach, then south on Fletcher Avenue before heading east on Sadler Road and back along 14th Street to City Hall. Each loop takes about an hour. Passengers can also simply wave the Island Hopper down along its route, and the bus will make half-mile deviations from its standard route as well. A map of the route can be found at nassautransit.org/island-hopper and on rack cards distributed to local hotels, inns, restaurants, merchants, at the Amelia Island Visitors Center, and at each of the Island Hopper’s eight bus stops.
So, this summer, why not let the Island Hopper chauffeur you around the island in air conditioned comfort, and ride for free every Friday from June 30 to September 29! For more, call NassauTRANSIT at 904.261.0701.
The numbers are in -- the Island Hopper was a success Shrimp Festival weekend with 212 riders. That's almost as many as for the entire month of April! And, NassauTRANSIT's two Shrimp Festival shuttle buses ferried nearly 400 passengers from festival park and ride locations to the handicapped drop-off point downtown. If the Island Hopper continues to gain support -- and riders -- extended weekend hours could follow!
Plus, the Island Hopper has gotten another Five-Star TripAdvisor! Read the review at
