Ride the River Bend is the popular shuttle that transports floaters between the Drake Park river ‘get out’ and the Old Mill ‘put in’. Ride the River Bend helps 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 warm weather days when temperatures exceed 90 degrees, service is increased to every 15 minutes.
After years of floaters having to get out at the Colorado Bridge spillway and reenter at McKay Park, the newly opened Floater Channel has created a safe passageway that allows floaters to pass under the Colorado Bridge and continue their float without having to exit and reenter the waterway.
The 2017 season will run June 23 through September 4, Monday-Sunday.
HEAT WAVE SERVICE:
On Saturdays and Sundays when temperatures are forecast to exceed 90° F, buses will run every 15 minutes from 1:00-6:30pm.
RAINY DAY SERVICE: Service may be temporarily suspended due to inclement weather. Check our site for updates.
