"Shopper Shuttle" To Del Mar, Solana Beach Available

For the second year in a row, racing fans who want to shop or dine in the adjacent communities of Del Mar and/or Solana Beach have a free and easy way to do so using the "Shopper Shuttles" that start and return from the bus compound area alongside the track's Mission Tower Building on the west end of the facility.

The shuttles - one that goes south into the town of Del Mar, the other going north into Solana Beach - run each racing day between 5 and 10 p.m. Those wanting to leave their cars parked at the racetrack and be ferried to either of those locations can do so and avoid the often difficult parking arrangements in either location.
