Pacific Beach Shuttle

Pacific Beach ShuttleComing soon!

The City of San Diego, in partnership with the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG), is launching a neighborhood electric vehicle (NEV) shuttle service in the Pacific Beach community. 

We asked for your help in naming this fun, new transportation option and the voting results are in.  The winning name is … The Beach Bug!

Results of online and ballot box voting:

The Beach Bug 271
BABS (Balboa and Beach Shuttle)  267
The Beach Bolt 75
BEES (Beach Electric Energy Shuttle) 70
Total 683

Neighborhood electric vehicles (NEVs) are all-electric, low-speed shuttles that travel up to 25 mph. The Beach Bug will provide a new, fun and sustainable way to travel to your favorite beachside destinations.  This shuttle will also offer a convenient and direct connection to and from the Balboa Transit Station (Mid-Coast Trolley extension to UCSD), helping you move around the region without relying on a car. 

The Beach Bug is anticipated to launch in summer of 2023.
