The NB LINE is aimed at connecting visitors with the New Bedford community, providing easy access to New Bedford attractions, promoting the city’s history and creating a cohesive visitor experience for the hundreds of thousands of annual visitors to the whaling city. The shuttle system will have two routes starting from the National Park Visitor Center. The Downtown Route, running every 20 minutes, includes stops at the working waterfront, museums, parking garages, local businesses, Ocean Explorium, and other visitor destinations in the downtown area. The Fort Taber Route, running every 30 minutes, connects other primary visitor destinations of the city such as Fort Taber Park, antique shops, and beaches to the historic downtown.
