A pilot electric vehicle service serving downtown Oceanside will officially begin operations on Monday, June 13th.

The five-passenger “gO’side” electric buses will operate daily from 10 am to 10 pm. Buses can be greeted via the “Ride Circuit” app for smartphones and by selecting “Oceanside” as the location or pointing a bus to an area that is safe to stop for boarding.

The service will initially be free. However, based on passenger traffic, a nominal fare can be set at a later date.

The city of Oceanside signed a contract with the Circuit to carry out the pilot project, using funds from the American Rescue Plan Act. Visit Oceanside partnered with the city to name the pilot project. The Oceanside Service Area covers from Oceanside Harbor south to Vista Way west of Interstate 5.

“We are excited to launch this pilot project, which will provide Oceanside residents, visitors and downtown employees with a safe, efficient transportation option to relocate to our center this summer,” said Mayor Esther. Sanchez. “Not only will go’side help alleviate parking and congestion. It’s also a lot of fun to drive! “

The pilot project is scheduled to last until November 2022. More information is available at www.ridegoside.com.
