They’re baaa-aack. Two of Seattle’s free shuttle services — one along our waterfront and another at Discovery Park — are returning this summer to help save the strain on folks’ feet.

The free waterfront shuttle, managed by the Seattle Historic Waterfront Society, begins at King Street Station and follows Alaskan Way to the Space Needle (with three stops along the way). Folks can catch the shuttle everyday between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m., from now until Labor Day on Monday, Sept. 2.

The Discovery Park free shuttle runs from the North + East parking lots to the park’s beach on Saturdays until Sept. 7. The shuttles circulate every ~30 minutes from 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. (Note that pets, coolers, surfboards, and other large items are not allowed on board).

Bon voyage.
