Hop aboard the Pelican Hopper, a free, air-conditioned shuttle transportation service provided by the Town of Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, in conjunction with Broward County Transit. Driver Dennis Royes offers a warm hello to customers as they step onto the colorful community shuttle bus, which stops in front of Publix at the Village Shopping Center in Sea Ranch Lakes. The shuttle makes several round-trip daily visits to various points of interest and popular places. The service is absolutely free to residents and tourists! Riders who later make connections to other BCT routes, however, must pay the appropriate bus fare. The shuttle, which operates from 9am to 5:25pm Monday-Thursday, travels around town every 45 minutes with various stops, including three locations connecting with the Fort Lauderdale Galt/North Beach Community Bus. The bus also operates until 10pm on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
