Shuttle Service

During the busiest times of the year, locals and travelers can access free parking and free shuttle service on a first-come-first-serve basis provided by the City of St. Augustine and/or St. Johns County. These busy weekends are usually during holidays like the 4th of July or major events like the Nights of Lights.

However, you’ll also find information on this page about year-round free shuttles, like that at the Beach Shuttle, Amphitheatre or the First Friday Art Walk, as well as shuttles you can catch a ride with for a small fee.
