  • iShuttle Bus Service

  • The bright green and blue iShuttles are hard to miss as they zip around the streets of Irvine! They help commuters complete that critical first and last mile to and from work, home and Metrolink stations in both Irvine and Tustin. Starting this February, two new routes have been added to expand service and provide additional coverage to residential communities and places of employment in Irvine.

    We’re waiting for you at the Metrolink station!

    It is not a coincidence that you’ll find iShuttles waiting when you arrive in Tustin and Irvine on Metrolink. We’re timed to meet your train, even wait 15 minutes if it’s running late, and get you to work.
