San Juan Transit brings new opportunities…
We love visitors to the island, but it’s even better when people leave their cars on the mainland & walk on! That’s where San Juan Transit comes in.
San Juan Transit is letting us have the best of both worlds, with regular shuttles running frequently (see schedule here). Due to a Scenic Byway “Alternative Transportation” Grant, SJT will be servicing Orcas Island beginning this Friday, June 22 through September 3 (Fridays through Mondays for 10 weeks), as well as adding another shuttle route on San Juan Island.
They have also been busy promoting “free companion shuttle fare” on the KPLU, KUOW, and Total Traffic radio stations, in addition to a few Seattle/NW WA magazines.
Last but not least, they have a position available for a driver on Orcas Island. Qualifications would be a 7-year clean driving record, ability to pass a drug test, enjoyment of people, and ability to drive a 20 foot passenger bus (CDL not required). Pay is $13/hour and driver would need to be able to work from 9am-5pm Fri-Mon. If interested, please contact Dan Ward at 378-8887.
