A free weekend beach shuttle that circles Marina del Rey and Playa Vista during the summer months will now operate every weekend year-round, Los Angeles County Supervisor Janice Hahn announced Wednesday.

The shuttle began its traditional summer service early this year on March 31, but the Board of Supervisors on Tuesday approved a new contract that will keep the buses running throughout the year.

“Our beaches operate year-round, why shouldn’t our beach shuttle?” Hahn said. “I encourage everyone to jump on board the beach shuttle next time you’re in the Marina Del Rey area. It’s fast, it’s free and it will take you where you need to go.”

The shuttles run roughly every 30 minutes on a circular route from Playa Vista, around the marina to the Washington Boulevard pier. The service runs from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sundays and holidays.

The Marina del Rey Waterbus will continue to operate only during summer months, running Thursday through Sunday. This year’s service is scheduled to begin June 22 and end Sept. 4.
