If you haven’t ridden the Island Hopper yet, now’s your chance to do it – for free!
Every Friday, beginning June 30 and running through September 29, the Island Hopper will be offering “Fare Free Fridays” when passengers can hop aboard anywhere on the route, and as many times as they want, without paying the $1 boarding fee.
Nassau TRANSIT’s Island Hopper bus service is regularly-scheduled public transportation running a loop around the northern half of Amelia Island Thursday through Monday from10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., as well as on holidays. The ride only costs $1 per boarding – except on Fare Free Fridays!
The IslandHopper departs from Fernandina Beach City Hall at 10 a.m. and makes a loop down Atlantic Avenue to Main Beach, then south on Fletcher Avenue before heading east on Sadler Road and back along 14th Street to City Hall. Each loop takes about an hour. Passengers can also simply wave the Island Hopper down along its route, and the bus will make half-mile deviations from its standard route as well. A map of the route can be found at nassautransit.org/island-hopper and on rack cards distributed
to local hotels, inns, restaurants, merchants, at the Amelia Island Visitors Center, and at each of the Island Hopper’s eight bus stops.
So, this summer, why not let the Island Hopper chauffeur you around the island in air conditioned comfort, and ride for free every Friday from June 30 to September29!
