Next time you need a ride, request one ahead of time through the “Ride Circuit” app. These fully electric shuttles will provide riders with a fun, safe, energy efficient way to travel around Downtown Oceanside. A low fare of $3 per rider (with a cap of $6 for more than two riders) will be charged.*
The initial operating plan is as follows and is subject to change due to demand and funding sources:
Hours of Operation December 2023 – April 2024
Mon – Tues: No service
Wed – Sun: 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Hours of Operation May – November 2023 (Daily)
Mon – Wed: Noon to 10 p.m.
Thurs – Sun: 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
While using the Circuit App is the fastest way to book a ride, you do not need the Circuit app to ride the gO’side Shuttle. However, the app provides many helpful features for riders to access their drivers and track their incoming ride. If you do not have a smart phone, the shuttles can be booked with a phone call instead at (760) 547-7870.
These shuttles are designed for shorts trips and small cargo. The shuttles cannot currently store surfboards; however, you can ride with a boogie board
Pets are welcome on the shuttles at the discretion of each individual driver and the other passengers in the vehicle. Please speak with your driver when they arrive to confirm it is acceptable. Please follow this pet etiquette:
• Pets are not allowed on seats
• Your pet must stay on your lap or on the floor between your legs at all times
• Pets must remain inside the vehicle at all times
Your trip may be shared with other gO’side riders, similar to an Uber Pool.
* To supplement the low rider fees, Visit Oceanside will provide $100,000, SANDAG will contribute $250,000, the City of Oceanside will pay $223,000 per year.
