    The Flatirons

    Free Park-to-Park Chautauqua Shuttle For Hikers

    Easy & Free Weekend Transportation

    Headed to the Chautauqua Trailhead to hike among the Flatirons? Parking is extremely limited on weekends. We strongly recommend riding the free weekend shuttle to get there stress-free and to avoid parking fees.

    Please note: On Memorial Day, May 28, shuttle service will be rerouted from Pearl St. to Canyon and Arapahoe because of BolderBoulder road closures, and the parking lot at CU-Regent will be used for BolderBoulder participants. Shuttle service will go back to the normal route the weekend of June 2.

    How It Works

    Simply park for free at downtown parking garages, CU Regent lot or New Vista High School, and then hop on the shuttle. The Park-to-Park map, showing parking garages and shuttle stops, is below. More information available at
