SANTA RITA, Guam (Jan. 25, 2019) – U.S. Naval Base Guam (NBG) will launch an Installation Base Shuttle Program on Jan. 28 in an effort to provide pedestrian safety, ensure readiness of our deployed forces and permanently assigned warfighters, and offer consistent, predictable, and reliable transportation.

An Installation Shuttle Program will provide benefit and ease of access to the installation’s medical resources, as well as Quality of Life resources for over 4,100 permanently assigned warfighters and over 36,000 deployed personnel operating between NBG, NBG - Polaris Point, and NBG - Naval Hospital Guam.

The shuttle service may be provided for:

  • Military personnel and Department of Defense (DoD) employees.
  • Enlisted personnel traveling between berthing, places of duty, and dining facilities.
  • DoD contractor personnel conducting official business.
  • Employees of non-DoD Federal Agencies on official business on a space available basis only.
  • DoD personnel and dependents who require additional support (medical, commissary, and religious) which directly affects health, morale, and welfare of the family.
