CARINA BAY CASINO EXPANDS FREE SHUTTLE SERVICE

Beginning July 11, Divi Carina Bay Casino is increasing its free shuttle service with two new routes on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, and adding Friday afternoons to the existing Frederiksted and Christiansted service.
The first new route is scheduled to start at the Hibiscus Beach Hotel in La Grande Princesse, and will continue on to Cormorant Beach Club, Mill Harbour Condominiums, Colony Cove Condominiums, Sugar Beach Condominiums, Club St. Croix Condominiums, and then the Christiansted Wharf before arriving at Divi Carina Bay Casino.
The second new route is scheduled to begin at the Christiansted Wharf and then stop for passengers at Cheeseburgers in Paradise, Tamarind Reef, and Chenay Bay Beach Resort and then proceed to the casino.
Both shuttles will run Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 7 p.m., 8 p.m., and 9 p.m. The shuttles will return at 11 p.m., midnight and 1a.m.
"We hope that these new shuttles will increase the number of off-Island visitors to the casino," said Divi Carina Bay General Manager Roger Saylers.
The Frederiksted and Christiansted shuttles will now run on Friday in addition to the current Monday and Wednesday schedule. The Frederiksted shuttle departs from the Frederiksted Hotel at 11a.m., picks up more passengers in front of the Wendy’s in Sunny Isle at 11:30 a.m. and arrives at the casino at noon.
The Christiansted shuttle departs from the Pueblo in Golden Rock, then at the Christiansted Wharf at 11:30 a.m., and arrives at the casino at noon. Both shuttles depart from the casino at 4 p.m.
"The Monday and Wednesday shuttle has been popular, so we added Friday. People have such a good time out here during the day, hopefully we will expand the service to include more days and routes," said Salyers.
The Orlando-based band "House Party" is appearing in the Mongoose Lounge Wednesdays through Sundays from 8 p.m. –– midnight through July. Local bands entertain the crowds on Mondays and Tuesdays from 8 p.m. –– midnight, and Friday and Saturdays from midnight –– 4 a.m.
Divi Carina Bay Casino is open seven days a week from noon to 4 a.m., Sunday through Thursday; and from noon to 6 a.m. on Fridays, Saturdays and holidays. For additional information, please call 773.9700 x790.
