Just in time for the weekend’s predicted sunshine, Rockaway Beach’s new Williamsburg-to-the-beach “Rockabus” is kicking off its service this Saturday and Sunday with free roundtrip rides to shore.

Beginning at 9:30 a.m. and departing every 35 minutes, yellow school buses will cruise back and forth between Metropolitan and Meeker Avenues and the beach’s boardwalk at Beach 86th Street. The final bus leaves the beach at 6:55 p.m.

“The inspiration for the Rockabus came after realizing that there should be an affordable way to get out to Rockaway that doesn’t involve spending an hour underground on a beautiful day,” Rockabus founder Sam Morrill told the Gothamist. The service will charge $10 one way and $18 round trip.

Visit Rockabus’s site for all the details, and don’t forget sunscreen.
