1. Re: Sawgrass Mills Mall Shuttle

I saw that and I think it's a great idea fro the people staying on the south end of the Beach, but quite honestly, those planning on taking it from the north end could get on the #72 BCT bus ( near Pelican Grande) or the #36 ( near B Ocean and ride out and back from Sawgrass Mall for under $4 total when that shuttle charges $25 - granted the BCT bus is slower as it will be stopping along the way, but there is no need to change buses , so I'd just sit back and enjoy saving $20 if it were up to me. For people at the other end of the beach who previously have had to change buses enroute if they ride BCT ( like #40 transferring to #22 or 23 at the Downtown Terminal) I think the $25 would be worth it to avoid that hassle- though I am sorry BCT doesn't provide a better public transport option for them..

Still I am at least glad to see Sawgrass finally doing something up this way for the many tourists who come here without a car.

I hope both they and Hard Rock Casino figure out tourist friendly ways to transport our visitors. So many people want to enjoy ( and spend money at) both places but find getting there too tedious.

Many of our UK visitors are used to public transit in their everyday life and don't even possess a driver's license.

You might want to advertise on UrbanSawgrass.com as a lot of people visit that site for the latest on Sawgrass Mills Mall shopping and the neighborhood.

Thanks for the heads up. I don't really get SawMills -numerous outlets have shuttles (fee is not an issue) to help people get there.

I suspect they are missing the boat (figuratively speaking) as many visitors would probably spend $$$ once there.

I was actually just investigating costs and different methods to get there and had the rudest reply from "Fast Shuttle" in Fort Lauderdale. Certainly they are one option out the window.

The Shuttle Service , which must be reserved in advance is $15 one way or $25 r/t/ There is a city bus route which would be much cheaper ( about $3.50 each way, but it does involve changing buses and will take much longer and is not through a very nice area- but it would be Bus #40 to the Central Bus Terminal and then a change to Bus 22 or 23 to Sawgrass. I believe enroute it stops at Lauderhill Mall to get more passengers and that is a very low income area- one of our posters got off there thinking it was Sawgrass and found it pretty awful.

If you decide to do the shuttle instead, the closest pick up to the Sheraton is Marriott Harbor Beach hotel- you can a call 954-805-7196 for more information or ask at your hotel- the concierge probably has information about it or certainly the concierge at Marriott would. I have never taken the shuttle to the mall- I believe it only makes a few trips daily- a couple going out in the am and a few back from Sawgrass later in the day..

You'll have to skip through the part written in Spanish to get to the English information- but a schedule is included ( though this may not be current) Sawgrass is popular with tourists from South America who may be a big part of their clientele.

Lulutoo and Shuttlevanman....do you know if there is public transit (one bus) from either Il Lugano Hotel or Ritz Carlton Fort Lauderdale to Sawgrass or do we have to transfer several buses? If yes, then we will pay the extra $ for the Mall Shuttle which comes to the latter hotel for convenience. But, if it is just one bus #40, I can then save $40 for the 2 of us.

Many thanks for your info....

The shuttle mentioned above ( $15 one way , $25 r/t ) also picks up at the Ritz. The same city bus routes ( #40 to central terminal transfer to #22 or 23 is the only possible public transport to Sawgrass from that area of the beach You have to change there from bus #40 as it does not go to Sawgrass, only buses 22 or 23 do that from central terminal.- much cheaper, but certainly not as convenient/comfortable , especially with having to transfer buses. The Concierge at Ritz should have the information about the more expensive shuttle ( it is also on the blue link in the posts above where the schedule lists the Ritz as a pick up.) and should be able to tell you the city bus route and where the stop nearest you for the #40 route is should you decide to try that. .
