Palo Alto Shuttle (Discontinued)

Effective July 1, 2020, the Palo Alto Free Shuttle service (both the Embarcadero and Crosstown shuttle) is discontinued due to citywide financial reductions. At this time, there are no plans to restart it. However, the Office of Transportation was recently awarded a two-year pilot project grant to begin a new on-demand shuttle service. This service is expected to begin operating prior to the start of the 2022-23 school year.
