Since they began at the beach, with the support of local business sponsors, the Jacksonville Transportation Authority, and North Florida Sales “Enjoy Responsibly” Campaign, they have grown ridership to over 11,000 riders a month during peak times!
The San Marco Merchants Association started working with Beach Buggy in the fall of 2018 to bring their services to San Marco and bring this innovative service to this beloved riverfront community.
Their help was critical with the necessary introductions to local owners and community leaders and providing a platform to secure private funding to launch phase one of the Buggy service.
The current coverage area is from the St Johns River to the West and North, to Kings Ave to the East, and River Oaks Rd to the South. (See Map Below)
