Del Mar approves shuttle for 2012 fair

By Claire Harlin

The Del Mar City Council on May 7 approved a pilot shuttle service that will transport riders between downtown Del Mar and the Del Mar Fairgrounds during the 2012 fair.

Operated and funded by the 22nd District Agricultural Association, the shuttle is meant to provide linkage from the fair to Del Mar businesses, as well as transport local residents to the fair. The $150,000 transportation plan is part of a larger effort to mitigate the effects of the fair and fair traffic on the surrounding area.

A route has been established, said City Manager Scott Huth, adding that there will be two shuttles for Del Mar and Solana Beach, but the shuttle in question serves only Del Mar. The frequency and size of the shuttle have not been determined, but will be finalized when a vendor is selected by the Ag. Board.

The shuttle will stop southbound on Camino Del Mar just north of 15th Street, northbound on Coast Boulevard near the Powerhouse, and northbound on Camino Del Mar at Via de la Valle.

The Ag. board has said it will provide more details at an upcoming press conference. The pilot program is subject to change after an evaluation of its use and effectiveness.
