The Panama City Beach Convention and Visitor’s Bureau is sponsoring free bus rides to tourists and locals alike starting July 1. This recently released poster specifies three easy steps to ride:
- Spot the beach bus
- Wave to ride (hop on or off wherever you like)
- Flip-flop aboard
This free transportation pilot program is being funded by a Transportation Grant and will run from July 1 to September 5 – Labor Day weekend. The route will travel on Front Beach Road from Walmart to the Visitor Information Center on Highway 79.
Here is the poster.
What are your thoughts on this? Do you think this will be a big help to those trying to traverse our summer traffic-ridden area? Or do you think the frequent stops will add to the congestion? What do you think the rider experience will be like with people being able to request stops whenever/wherever?
