  • Memorial Day kicks off a pilot project of running shuttles in Garden of the Gods.

Free shuttles went into service at Garden of the Gods Park on May 25 and will operate daily from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. through Aug. 21. They’ll also run Labor Day weekend.

Two 14-passenger vans will run a loop including the Rock Ledge Ranch parking lot, the Garden of the Gods Visitor & Nature Center, the intersection of Gateway Road and Juniper Way Loop, and Rock Ledge Ranch when it’s open.

The city and the Garden of the Gods Foundation fund the shuttle, in its second year, that’s operated by Adventures Out West.

Meantime, shuttle service resumed to Pikes Peak starting May 24 during construction of a new Summit House project. It’s free, but visitors must pay the normal Pikes Peak Highway fee. The shuttle service ends in mid-October.
