The Florida Keys now has a greener way of getting around for residents.


KEY WEST, Fla. – Do you want to avoid the hassle of traffic and parking? Why not park your car and leave it, then hop on the free Duval Loop?

Key West Transit recently launched the much-awaited free bus service to the downtown corridor.

The hop-on, hop-off bus service runs from the City’s Park and Ride on Grinnell Street, along Caroline Street, up the length of Whitehead, then returns down the length of Simonton to Fleming.

Funded by last year’s one dollar increase in parking meter rates, the Duval Loop provides free and easy access to restaurants, galleries, gift shops and theatres. Just park once and forget it.

The free Duval Loop will run Thursday through Sunday until November, when it will begin running seven days a week.

The Duval Loop makes 16 stops along the way, and runs every half hour in the mornings, from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m., and it runs every 15 minutes from 11 a.m. until midnight.
