New this year. The Florence sponsors of Circles in the Sand have coordinated with the City of Florence to use four hours of community service for a free shuttle from Highway 101 to the Heceta Beach area on Saturday, October 14, from 4 to 8 p.m.
City staff and the Transportation Committee have set up a Park & Ride with Rhody Express for part of the event.
People can park at Munsel Lake Plaza, 4969 Highway 101, and take the Rhody Express to the Heceta Beach area, where they will walk Circles in the Sand. City staff and volunteers will operate both ends of the shuttle, with signage at the parking area and at the drop-off spot.
Rhody Express will do trips between the two locations between 4 and 8 p.m. People who choose to use the Park & Ride should be prepared for Oregon Coast weather and walking. Service animals and small pets in carriers are permitted on the bus. Learn more at www.ltd.org.
This Park & Ride coordination is possible thanks to Rhody Express, Lane Transit District, Driftwood Shores, Sand Master Park, City of Florence, the Florence Transportation Committee, West Coast Real Estate Services, Inc., and community volunteers. Thank you!
