Long Beach AquaLink
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.
On Tuesday, February 23 at 11 a.m., Long Beach Transit (LBT), along with Mayor Robert Garcia, will celebrate the completion of its new AquaLink water taxi dock. The public is encouraged to attend the ribbon-cutting ceremony.
On February 8, 2015, Long Beach Transit (LBT) will no longer sell paper bus passes. LBT will instead use a durable card-based system called TAP (Transit Access Pass). LBT customers will need to acquire a TAP card to purchase Long Beach Transit bus passes.
On Tuesday, September 23, 2014, Long Beach Transit released a Request For Proposal (RFP) seeking up to 10 battery-electric buses from a qualified Transit Vehicle Manufacturer (TVM).
With the addition of battery-electric buses, over 80 percent of Long Beach Transit’s active revenue fleet will be either hybrid, compressed natural gas or zero-emission battery-electric buses.
Free system-wide bus service will be available on Long Beach Transit starting at 5 p.m. this New Year’s Eve. The promotion encourages residents to take public transit to and from festivities in Long Beach to avoid drinking and driving.
Long Beach Transit’s popular water taxis, AquaLink, AquaLink Express and AquaBus, are back on the water from May 18 through September 29, 2013. 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.
