SANDAG and the City of San Diego have partnered to launch a neighborhood electric vehicle (NEV) shuttle service in the Pacific Beach (PB) community. The shuttle ("The Beach Bug") will provide residents and visitors connections to and from the UC San Diego Blue Line Trolley via the Balboa Transit Station.
An NEV is a low-speed electric vehicle shuttle used for short trips up to three miles. NEVs typically operate on a fixed route or an on-demand route, where the NEV shuttle can be hailed with a smartphone app.
The Beach Bug is being paid for with federal funds and revenue collected from on-street parking meters in Pacific Beach through the City of San Diego.
The Beach Bug is a two-year pilot program that launched in the summer of 2023. Use the interactive map to share your thoughts on the program.
