Traffic and parking around Marlins Park is proving less of an issue than generally forecast. But the trip to Little Havana is daunting to some in Broward and Palm Beach counties.
One option gaining traction is to leave the driving to Ballgame Express. The upstart bus service is offering round-trip transportation to the ballpark from World of Beer and Hooters locations in Broward and Palm Beach counties.
The ride costs $30, and game tickets can also be purchased, depending on availability. For pricing and schedule, visit BallgameExpress.com.
For this weekend’s series against the Diamondbacks, buses are available only for the Monday game. Pickup and drop-off will be at the Hooters in West Palm Beach, Boca Raton, Sunrise and Pembroke Pines, as well as World of Beer in Wellington and Coconut Creek.
“We anticipate developing a regular route with World of Beer and Hooters going north to south for all games starting with the Mets (May 11-13),” said Mark Lubow, of BallgameExpress. “Our biggest challenge is getting the word out.”
