Shorelink Shuttle

If you like visiting the beach at Belmar on a hot summer day but can't stand the traffic you face getting there and back, consider taking the train. Ah, but what are you supposed to do once you get to the station? How do you get to the beach?

Well, Belmar and neighboring towns have an inexpensive ($1 per ride) shuttle bus service that connects visitors to the beach and train stations and points (restaurants, shopping, etc) in between. From now until 30 September, the shuttle will run Thursdays 9 am to 6 pm and Fridays through Sundays 9 am to 9 pm. The shuttle serves North Jersey Coast Line railroad stations at Asbury Park, Bradley Beach and Belmar. The shuttle also serves Ocean Grove.

The Shorelink Shuttle is a joint project of the Federal Government, Monmouth County, and the municipalities it serves. The Feds are picking up 75% of the cost. Check out the story at APP.
