These awesome, spotlessly clean, bright blue buses are brand-new and improved for your enjoyment. They feature comfy seating, air conditioning, and free refreshments on select routes and they are ready to take your around to all of your favorite South Fork hotspots (or completely chill spots). Time to hop on, hop off once again!!
The Hamptons Hopper Bus Fleet
The Hopper fleet is new and fresh!! The buses are only under 2 years old on average. All of these wonderfully cool vehicles feature air conditioning, comfy seating, mood lighting, custom sound (with USB and Bluetooth) and all that style. The buses are super clean and well-maintained, too
These buses are super cool and custom built! Hopper has buses that seat 32 adults, 25 adults and 14 adults. Some you can charter for your private use.
Hamptons Hopper Bus iPhone App
The service is great, and it’s really easy to use, too. The company is all about being high-tech and making the service work well for it’s customers. Their really great iPhone app shows you the stop closest to you, the location of the nearest Hopper, and the estimated time until the next hopper arrives. Everything should be this good, shouldn’t it???
