Introducing Port Washington Shuttle
The Shore Road Shuttle pilot service is now known as the Port Washington Shuttle, offering weekday commuter service for Soundview and W. Shore Road to/from the Port Washington LIRR station.
This innovative pilot service provides morning and evening PEAK commuter service for Soundview area residents to the Port Washington LIRR. The shuttle then continues its mid-day service along West Shore Road servicing Roslyn businesses surrounding the Clock Tower, Industrial Park and Fairway Drive, among other established stops.
This shuttle service provides transportation through two separate, but intersecting routes to connect Port Washington and Roslyn North Shore communities. Passengers are asked to hail the shuttle with a hand wave at Request-Only stops. Riders can enjoy free transfers to NICE Bus fixed-route n23 service connections from Mineola to Manorhaven, as well as n20h transfers at the Roslyn Clocktower.
Shuttle fares remain the same as our fixed-route buses at $2.75 one-way, with NICE GoMobile, MetroCard, and cash (in exact change) payment methods available. Fareboxes do not accept dollar bills. Pilot program funding for the service secured through Spring 2020 to explore ridership demand in the Port Washington and Roslyn area.
Where is the service area?
The Soundview leg of this service offers easy access to the Port Washington LIRR station, while the W. Shore Road leg still provides dropoffs and pickups along the popular industrial and storefront businesses including the Amsterdam entrance at Fairway Drive and W. Shore Road. Residents outside of the service area are invited to leave us a comment or service request here.
