Huntington Beach is ready to launch three options to make visiting the downtown even more enjoyable this summer, with the return of the Surf City Downtown Shuttle, Main-Promenade Garage Valet Parking and an exciting new partnership with Pedego Electric Bikes to provide free, secured bicycle parking.
The Surf City Downtown Shuttle returns for a third season of free service May 26-September 3, operating from 10:00 AM to 10:00 PM on Saturdays, Sundays, Memorial Day and Labor Day. Beginning May 29, the Shuttle will operate year-round on Tuesday nights from 5:30 PM to 10:00 PM to provide a free, fun and convenient way to visit during Surf City Nights. All shuttles depart every 30 minutes from the Huntington Beach Civic Center at 2000 Main Street, stopping at Main and Orange on Tuesdays and weekends, and stopping at The Strand/5th Street on weekends as well.
Bicyclists searching for a secure – and free - parking spot for their wheels this summer, won’t be searching long: Pedego Electric Bicycles, one of downtown’s newest merchants, will provide free, secured bicycle parking at their location on weekends from 10 AM to 6 PM and Tuesdays during Surf City Nights from 6 PM to 9 PM. Pedego’s location at 5th and Olive has more area capacity and staff to handle the volume of bicycles in Surf City and has partnered with the city to take over the program formerly operated by the city in 2010 and 2011 in a smaller space.
The Main-Promenade Garage Valet Program is set to return for Summer 2012 and more information will be available about that program in the coming weeks.
