Marathon Bus Stop Fairfield Inn Marathon Fairfield Inn Bus stop is located by the entrance to the Fairfield Inn on U.S. 1, Effective May 26.  The Lower Keys Shuttle will no longer pull into the Fairfield Inn parking lot.  New Cutaways added to Key West Public Transit Fleet.

Cutaway BusYou may have noticed the newest vehicle type in the Key West public transit fleet on the streets lately.  They are called cutaways, are A.D.A. compliant, and can transport 14 passengers.  When ridership is typically lower, these vehicles are integrated into the city bus routes.  They are a bit quieter and easier to maneuver.

By using the cutaways along with the existing 30-and 35-foot buses, the City of Key West is trying to maximize transportation services to the riding public in the safest, most efficient, and environmentally conscious method possible.  

Buses may be delayed at times due to heavy seasonal traffic.
