Is it better to drive or take the shuttle to ptown beaches?

I was just reading the thread about parts of the parking at Herring Cove being washed out. For there and Race Point, will it be hard to find parking in August? We've never used the shuttle, but are willing to give it a shot.

At Herring Cove, only a portion of the smaller lot to the right after you pass the Ranger booth, was lost. The main lot, to the left, in intact. Race Point parking is unaffected. I would drive. Much easier if you are bring beach stuff.

You really should just drive yourselves. That’s easiest.

What is the cost comparison? Is the entrance fee to the beach included with the shuttle vs $20 a day pass per vehicle or $60 for an annual pass? We have a sticker, but this may be important for those on a short stay.
