Rocky Mountain National Park Shuttle

Free Shuttle Bus Service

Leave the driving to us. Access many destination and loop hikes along the Bear Lake Road corridor while enjoying the beautiful scenery without the distraction and hassle of traffic congestion and limited parking. Join us on one of our environmentally friendly passenger shuttle buses.

Easy Connections

Shuttle buses run between many trailheads, Moraine Park and Glacier Basin Campgrounds and the Moraine Park Museum on the Bear Lake Road. The shuttle buses run on two routes along the Bear Lake Road, the Bear Lake Route and the Moraine Park Route. Both routes are based at the Park Ride shuttle bus parking area, across from Glacier Basin Campground on the Bear Lake Road, where you can make your connection between the routes.
