Long Beach Transit announces it will extend AquaLink water taxi service for its late-season schedule commencing Friday, September 23, 2016. The late-season AquaBus schedule will remain the same.

Late-season AquaLink service started September 9, 2016. It is a three-day schedule that operates Friday – Sunday with boats departing approximately every two hours. Typically, the last AquaLink departing Alamitos Bay Landing during the late-season schedule leaves at 6:20 p.m. Due to demand LBT has extended hours on Friday and Saturday so that the last AquaLink departing Alamitos Bay Landing will be 10:30 p.m. 

AquaBus service is $1 one way and connects customers to popular downtown attractions like The Queen Mary, Hotel Maya, Aquarium of the Pacific, Pine Avenue Circle and Shoreline Village. AquaLink service is $5 one way and connects The Queen Mary and Aquarium visitors to eastside ocean-front destinations like the Belmont Pier and Alamitos Bay Landing. Water taxi customers pay exact cash fare at time of boarding. Bicycles are welcome when space is available.

“With the addition of new eateries and businesses along the waterfront, LBT’s AquaLink is busier than ever. You can’t really beat spending a weekend on the water getting between destinations. People are staying out later, and so now LBT’s AquaLink will do the same to accommodate them,” said Lee Burner, LBT’s Executive Director/Vice President of Transit Service Delivery and Planning.
