Need a lift? ‘Seacrets Service’ new free shuttle goes extra mile for patrons

(Sept. 13, 2013) Launched Sept. 5, “Seacrets Service” transporter has gone off without a hitch, Seacrets, Jamaica U.S.A. Owner Leighton Moore said.

The new, free shuttle service picks up customers from any location in Ocean City, West Ocean City, Ocean Pines and Berlin and take them to Seacrets on 49th Street. When the happy hour or night is over, it drops them off anywhere in the same area, even other restaurants or bars.

“We’re trying to be responsible, we’re trying to get extra added service, and we’re trying to get people a way that they can come back to Ocean City,” Moore said.

Starting with a four-person limo, he recently added two 12-person vans and a 28-passenger bus to his fleet.

So far, the shuttle has been “really busy,” said driver Deborah Price. Customers “are really appreciative of it. Everyone keeps asking how much the free shuttle service costs.”

Even though the rides are free for passengers, Moore said it’s a good business move. “If you’ve got a 28-passenger bus, and each person spends $20 [at Seacrets], that’s more than worth it,” he said.

The shuttle service will run throughout the winter, which he hopes will boost business in the off-season.

“Parties get together at a neighborhood house and want to come… but don’t want to worry about driving home. It’ll really be a good incentive for them to possibly pick Seacrets,” he said.

The restaurant and nightspot already had a limo lane, largely unused until now. If Seacrets Service is a hit, Moore plans to expand his fleet and hire more drivers.

“We’re transporting them to Jamaica. We put our wings out,” he said.

Seacrets Service runs from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. daily, taking customers to Seacrets  from anywhere in Ocean City, West Ocean City, Ocean Pines and Berlin, including other businesses. Call 410-524-4900 to reserve a ride in advance or for as-soon-as-possible pick-ups.
