COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - After last year's success, the city of Colorado Springs announced Thursday that the optional shuttles that run through Garden of the Gods will be returning this summer.
You don't have to take them, but the two passenger vans will probably have you walking around the park a lot quicker than trying to find a parking space for your car first.
The shuttles have several pickup spots and will depart the parking lot at Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site every 15 minutes.
“With limited parking in the park’s main parking lot due to the construction of new restroom facilities, we believe the shuttle will be an even more attractive option for visitors this summer, and we hope this optional service helps provide an even more enjoyable experience for all,” said Kim King, parks and recreation manager.
The shuttles will begin service this Saturday, and they'll operate every day from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. through Aug. 21. They'll also run during Labor Day weekend, according to the city.
Shuttles to the top of Pikes Peak will also begin running this weekend. Those shuttles will pick up passengers at the Devil's Playground to take them to the summit.
