The Pilot Program will run from August 1st though Labor Day (2009) on Saturdays and Sundays from 10:00 a.m until 6:00 p.m..
Metro Travel Services is the company that will run the pilot program's shuttles. "We think this shuttle provides a great link for visitors who take the ferry service to Riis Landing to get to sites around Jamaica Bay," said General Superintendent Barry Sullivan. "Having National Park Service Rangers on board the shuttle is an extra feature that we hope will help visitors learn more about the sites they are visiting and orient passengers to the different routes offered."
