With the NYC Beach Bus no longer in service this summer, getting out to our favorite beaches is a bit more difficult than it used to be. You can bike, ride the train, even take the ferry to more accessible spots like Rockaway, but when it comes to more far-flung shores, without a car you’re kinda out of luck. 

 

But now there’s a pretty clutch promotion that provides another way. Skedaddle, an on-demand bus pooling app, is offering $1 bus rides out to NYC area beaches every Saturday from now until Labor Day. 

 

The bus will pick up and drop off passengers at different locations throughout Manhattan and Brooklyn (basically, you have to check each ride to determine the points of departure).The schedule rotates the beach destinations and doesn’t include popular NYC beaches like Jacob Riis, Fort Tilden or Rockaway. But it will get you out to some of the best shores in Long Island — Long Beach, Robert Moses, Atlantic Beach and Jones Beach — as well as New Jersey — Sandy Hook, Long Branch and Point Pleasant. Try something different — it’s only $1, anyway.

 

The bus can accommodate 50-odd passengers, but a few trips are already sold out, and seats are filling up, so download the app and reserve a ride ASAP! The summer clock is ticking. Oh, and don’t forget to wear sunscreen, kiddos. Now, how can get more #brands to follow suit and hook us up with sweet summertime promos?
