What is the Park to Park program?

The Park to Park program provides free satellite parking and shuttle service to and from Boulder's beautiful, and very popular Chautauqua Park, 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 in the nearby neighborhood streets during summer weekends and holidays.

Park to Park Shuttle 2021

The Park to Park shuttle operates from Memorial Day weekend (late May) to Labor Day weekend (early September). The 2021 season will be weekends between Saturday, May 29 through 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.
