The 20-passenger shuttle bus with wheelchair lift and bike rack will operate
during morning and evening commute times Monday through Friday
Civita has introduced a free shuttle service to give residents easy access to San Diego Trolley Stations at Fenton Marketplace and Hazard Center. The 20-passenger shuttle bus with bike rack and ADA compliant wheelchair lift will initially operate Monday through Friday from 7 to 9 a.m. in the morning and 5 to 7 p.m. in the evening. The shuttle stops in Civita are located on Civita Boulevard near Via Alta.
The shuttle will operate in a continuous loop. Residents will be able to determine the next pick-up time via a GPS tracking system from Transdev, a global transportation provider. It is available at www.civitashuttle.com
“This free shuttle service, operated by the Civita Homeowners’ Association, is intended to help Civita residents with their commutes, said Mark Radelow, vice president and senior project manager for Sudberry Properties, the developer of Civita.
The shuttle bus is fueled by propane, an emissions-reducing, economical alternative fuel used by San Diego’s Metropolitan Transit System (MTS). “The bus’ emission savings is equivalent to planting 1,380 trees or eliminating 56,822 pounds of coal over the life of the bus,” said Radelow. Historically, propane autogas costs 40 percent less than gasoline and up to 50 percent less than diesel, according to the MTS website.
“The shuttle service is another example of Civita’s commitment to the environment,” he said. “Civita has a tradition of employing the latest eco-friendly and sustainable innovations, including smart grid technology, solar arrays, electric vehicle charging stations, and street lighting using LED technology.”
