The City of Hollywood, in partnership with micro-transit provider Circuit, announces the launch of a two-month pilot community shuttle service in west Hollywood. During the trial period, March 27th through May 31st, the “Sun Shuttle West” Community Shuttle will operate 6-days a week, Monday through Saturday, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Upon request, a 12-person passenger van will pick-up and drop-off passengers at 18 predetermined locations. The pick-up and drop-off locations are high-volume destinations located west of I-95 between Johnson and Washington Streets to the Florida Turnpike. The Sun Shuttle West is an on-demand service, meaning shuttles will only visit designated pick-up/drop-off locations when a ride has been requested for that location. Riders are discouraged from waiting at a location without first making a request via the mobile application.
Riders can download the “Ride Circuit” application to request a ride. Fares will be set at $2.00 per person per ride, however if space is available, a person can ride to wherever the shuttle is already going free of charge.

Ridership will be evaluated during this pilot program and used for a feasibility study for a permanent community shuttle service. This additional community shuttle service would help to link with the BCT mainline bus system and Tri-Rail giving residents, visitors, and the business community access to a more integrated and convenient mass transit system within the city and beyond.
