Route 72 Free Bridge shuttle

 During construction of the Route 72 Manahawkin Bay Bridges Project, the sidewalk and bay bridge that connects the mainland to Bonnet Island will be closed to bicyclists and pedestrians. To accommodate people wishing to go to Bonnet Island, a FREE shuttle bus will run from Marsha Drive with a stop in the Eastbound (EB) direction at 3rd Street on Bonnet Island. The shuttle bus will then return in the Westbound (WB) direction stopping at the Public Access Parking Lot on Bay Avenue on Bonnet Island and Marsha Drive on the mainland. This is a TEMPORARY alternative that will operate seven (7) days a week while the sidewalk and bay bridge is closed. Please refer to the schedule below for times and the map for shuttle bus stop locations.

Come May, Surf City will once again be partnering with Hackensack Meridian Health to “Paint the Town Pink,” in an effort to encourage women, aged 40 and older, to have their annual mammogram and to remind women to continue to put wellness first in their lives. We invite our Surf City business owners, community groups, and physician practices to join in this initiative and become “Pink Partners.” Pink Partners are integral in this campaign, as their participation serves as a visual reminder for women to “think pink” as they make their way through town. Businesses must register by April 12th, 2018 to receive a free pink kit to decorate and be listed as a Pink Partner on the official Paint the Town Pink website. Participation is completely FREE, and Pink Partners are encouraged to get creative and show their support in ways that reflect their personality in our community. Interested businesses and groups can click the link below to register! Any questions regarding Paint the Town Pink in Surf City should be directed to Sgt. Sarah Roe from the Surf City Police Department, or Jennifer Collins (EMT) from the Surf City Volunteer Fire Company.
