Volunteers Needed to Test New On-Demand City Transit Service

On Monday, October 18, the City began testing its new on-demand residential transit service, called Laguna Beach Local. The free, shared-ride service will utilize plug-in hybrid minivans traveling along the three former neighborhood trolley routes, serving approximately 75 “virtual stops” in the Top of the World, Bluebird Canyon and Arch Beach Heights neighborhoods, and as well as in Downtown.

Residents will be able to request a ride when they want it using a mobile app, home computer, or by calling the City’s Transit dispatch line at (949) 497-0766.

Residents interested in beta testing the service during the next several weeks can e-mail lagunabeachlocal@lagunabeachcity.net, along with their name, mobile phone number and e-mail address. The first 150 residents to respond will be placed into the test user group and will receive instructions on how to request rides.
