Santa Clarita Transit also announced a new beach location for 2023.

Visitors can also rent many types of water toys at the harbor.  

Summer Beach Bus fares are $3 each way for children and adults and $1.50 each way for senior citizens and persons with disabilities. Riders may pay using the Token Transit mobile app by using the stored value on their TAP card or in exact cash. However, monthly passes will not be accepted. 

Buses will depart from the Via Princessa Metrolink Station and the McBean Regional Transit Center.
