Park-to-Park Free Shuttle to Chautauqua program

The Park-to-Park shuttle provides satellite parking and free shuttle service to and from Chautauqua, to create a better visitor experience while reducing vehicular and parking impacts on neighbors and the area’s natural and cultural resources. The program also includes paid parking at Chautauqua and nearby neighborhood streets during summer weekends and holidays.

The Park-to-Park shuttle operates from Memorial Day weekend (late May) to Labor Day weekend (early September). The last day of the 2021 season is Monday, Sept. 6.

The free shuttle runs on weekends and holidays only, and pay parking in/around Chautauqua Park is also in effect on weekends and holidays only.

Parking revenue helps pay for the free shuttle.

Please note that the Park-to-Park shuttle is a separate service from the HOP 2 Chautauqua shuttle.
