If you have been to Siesta Key you know how difficult it is to find a parking spot and if you can't get a spot nearby you have to haul all of your chairs, towels, umbrellas, sunscreen and snacks a fairly good distance.
On Saturday the Siesta Shuttle launches to solve some of those headaches. Siesta Shuttle offers service from Westfield Southgate Mall to Siesta Key Beach and Village. The transport services will begin on Saturday at 9 a.m.
This service was created to relieve the major parking issues on Siesta Key.
