Ride the River

 

Ride-play-ride-the-river@2xRide the River is the popular shuttle that transports floaters to help decrease the dependence on parking along Drake Park. Floaters can ride the shuttle for $3.00, which provides unlimited rides all day. CET’s Ride the River shuttle service begins in mid-June and runs through Labor Day. On Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, if there is a higher volume of floaters, buses will run every 15 minutes. Service may be reduced based on cooler weather conditions and rain and may be canceled in the event of thunderstorms.
