Toss your tube in the back
Let us take care of driving
Ride the River is the popular shuttle that transports floaters on the Deschutes River. The shuttle is a convenient option that decreases dependence on parking near Drake Park and the multi-car shuffle.
Floaters can ride the shuttle all day with the purchase of a wristband. CET’s Ride the River shuttle service begins in late-June and runs through Labor Day. On Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, if there is a higher volume of floaters, buses run every 15 minutes. Service may be reduced or canceled based on inclement weather including cooler temperatures, rain, thunderstorms and poor AQI.
The shuttle begins and ends at the Park & Float with stops at Riverbend Park and Drake Park. Tumalo Creek Kayak & Canoe and Sun Country Tours offer rental river tubes, stand-up paddle boards, and complementary life jackets for children and adults all summer long.
