City of Avalon Calif. Revolutionizes Public Transportation with New All-Electric MicroTransit Shuttle Service

  • Date: 04/25/2024

In partnership with Circuit Transit, residents and visitors of Avalon can now enjoy convenient rides to and from any destination within the city limits, with fares starting at $2 per rider. This initiative marks a departure from the traditional fixed route Garibaldi bus and dial-a-ride system, ushering in a new era of reliability and functionality in Avalon public transit while ensuring compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The primary objective of the COAST program is to address the evolving needs and expectations of Avalon’s residents and visitors, enhancing transit, easing congestion and alleviating parking demands in the city’s downtown area. By deploying a fleet of 100% electric vehicles, the initiative also aims to significantly reduce environmental impact, aligning with Avalon’s commitment to sustainability.

Circuit operates shared, on-demand, EV shuttle services in over 40 markets across the U.S.
