To say that parking at Boulder’s popular Chautauqua is limited does not even begin to describe the challenges in finding a space. To solve the problem, the city operates the FREE Park-to-Park hiker shuttle between downtown Boulder and Chautauqua trailhead between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays all summer long. It runs every 15 minutes.
For 2023, the shuttle begins operating Saturday, May 27, 2023,, and runs through Monday, September 4.
Included holidays are Memorial Day (May 29), Juneteenth (June 19), Independence Day (July 4), and Labor Day (Sept. 4) in 2023.
The shuttle picks up riders at several stops around Boulder as well as from the New Vista High School Parking lot (700 20th St.), the CU Regent parking lot (Regent Drive just east of Broadway) and the downtown Boulder parking garages.

Remember that parking in downtown Boulder parking garages and at the satellite parking lots (New Vista High School and CU Regent lot is FREE on weekends and holidays.
Note: The Park-to-Park shuttle is a separate service from the HOP 2 Chautauqua shuttle. The HOP 2 Chautauqua is a free transit service to the Colorado Music Festival and Chautauqua Summer Series events and is operated by the Colorado Chautauqua Association
