Pelican Hopper transportation Vehicle

Pelican Hopper - Free Public Transportation

The town's air-conditioned Pelican Hopper is a great way to get around. The shuttle starts at Publix Supermarket and heads south on Bougainvilla Drive to the Galt Ocean Mile in Fort Lauderdale (where you can connect to Broward County Transit buses) before heading north to Terra Mar Island (at the town’s northern boundary); the shuttle then returns to Publix to start another complete route.

The shuttle has specific stops, but the driver will pick you up or drop you off almost anywhere you need along the route. Hop on!
