The San Juan Islander reports that the “RoundTowner” Shuttle service is now available.
For guests who fly in or choose to leave their car in Anacortes, or who are traveling with people who are unable to do much walking, this is a convenient way to get around Friday Harbor. It costs only $3 per boarding, and operates as an “on-demand” taxi from 7:30 a.m. until 6 p.m. between the following locations:
Ferry Landing, Spring Street Landing, Marina, Whale Museum, Courthouse, Post Office, Friday Harbor High School, Friday Harbor Middle School, King’s Market, Friday Harbor Drugs, Life Care Center, Library, Peace Island Hospital, Skagit Valley College, Friday Harbor Airport, Marketplace, Foodbank, Family Resource Center, Mullis Senior Center, Brickworks, and anywhere in between such as restaurants, lodging, etc.
Call 360-298-4434 to be picked up on the next trip or just “flag down” the shuttle. It’s a black Honda Civic mini wagon with a taxi light on the roof and the RoundTowner logo on the side. The vehicle will accommodate 3-4 passengers and luggage. Elderly and disabled persons have priority.
This is a pilot project to estimate ridership demand and operational details, and is sponsored by the San Juan Islands Shuttle System, a Washington non-profit corporation.
