Circuit rolled out (literally) in Wilton Manors in October. The open-air vehicles that look like limo-sized versions of a golf cart carry passengers between any two points within the city limits.
After about five months of serving Wilton Manors, they are re-evaluating the needs of passengers. Effective immediately, Wednesday and Thursday service will run through 11 p.m. Previously, they stopped service at 9pm on those nights.
The new schedule:
Weds.-Sat. 12 p.m.-11 p.m.
Sun.-Tues. 11 a.m.-9 p.m.
The news was shared with SFGN by one of the drivers.
Timing Is Everything
The service launched to great fanfare last autumn, after Wilton Manors city commissioners agreed to a $250,000 subsidy. Company officials said they would track peak usage and demand, and adjust as needed.
“We’re always looking at that,” Circuit executive Karen Jurnigan said. “We have a robust data algorithm in our platform. We look at maps and ridership, we follow scheduled busy patterns, so hours get adjusted from time to time.”
Circuit is in Wilton Manors, Fort Lauderdale, and seven other South Florida cities. In Wilton Manors, the fare is $2 per passenger, and you must use the app to call a ride.
