The Park to Park weekend shuttle runs during the summer between Saturday, May 25, 2024 through Monday, Sept. 2, 2024, on Saturday & Sunday, from 8 am - 8 pm. It also runs on summer holidays (Memorial Day, Juneteenth, Independence Day and Labor Day).

Simply park for free at one of the five downtown City of Boulder parking garages (look for the green 'P'), the Regent lot at the University of Colorado-Boulder or New Vista High School. The shuttle is free and runs every 15 minutes. Dogs are welcome, but please be mindful - for before or after your hike - that dogs are not allowed on the Pearl Street Mall.

If you park in a downtown City of Boulder parking garage, you can take the Park to Park shuttle to CU Boulder and from there board the Eldo Shuttle. 

The shuttle is free* and runs every 20 minutes. Gear is welcome aboard (climbing gear, crash pads, leashed, well-behaved dogs, strollers, capacity for three bikes per shuttle). The shuttle ride is approximately a 25-minute ride.

Hop 2 Chautauqua 

Parking at Chautauqua is extremely limited - especially in the summer months and during special events.

Please consider the Hop 2 Chautauqua as a green alternative to get from downtown up to Chautauqua and back again. This free transit service provides rides to the Colorado Music Festival and Chautauqua Summer Series events.

Buses begin approximately 90 minutes before show time and arrive approximately every 15 - 20 minutes until 30 minutes after the performance begins. All inbound buses drop off on Baseline between 10th and Lincoln Place (Trolley Stop at Chautauqua Park). It is approximately a four minute walk, with an elevation gain of 100 feet, from the bus stop to the Auditorium.
