Free shuttle bus scrapped

A free shuttle bus on the Isle of Man has ceased running due to low demand, the Department for Infrastructure (DfI) said.

The service — running during the refurbishment of Douglas Promenade — had been operating 9.30a.m. – 4.30p.m. between Summerland and the Sea Terminal.

Minister for Infrastructure Ray Harmer (b. 1967) said nearly 4,500 people used the service between May and November 2019.

A spokesman for the DfI said there had since been ‘a significant decline’ in passenger numbers.
