Ride the FREE Hop 2 Chautauqua Shuttle

The Hop 2 Chautauqua service picks up at several convenient Boulder locations and drops off on Baseline Rd. at the entrance to Chautauqua. See below for a map, parking, shuttle stops, and more.

The HOP 2 Chautauqua free transit service is a special collaboration between Colorado Chautauqua, Colorado Music Festival, Via Mobility Services, and the City of Boulder.

  • For guests with accessibility needs, we suggest parking at New Vista High School where an ADA-compliant vehicle (see photo above) picks up guests. This vehicle runs during inbound service only.
  • New for 2023: Via Colorado will be changing the accessible bus to drop off on the curb in front of the Auditorium.
  • Patrons can schedule an accessible door-through-door ride by calling 303-444-3043 or visiting ViaColorado.org.
  • Post-concert outbound pick-up for all patrons (ADA included) is in the gravel lot on the east side of the Auditorium.

Tips for Riders

  • If a bus comes to your stop labeled anything other than Hop 2 Chautauqua, confirm with the driver that they are heading to Chautauqua.
  • Plan for a short uphill walk if you are riding the shuttle; inbound drop-off (except for the Via accessible vehicle) is on Baseline Road at the entrance to Chautauqua.
  • Post-concert outbound pick-up for all patrons (ADA included) is in the gravel lot on the east side of the Auditorium. 
  • If you are riding the return shuttle, please make sure to head directly to the pick-up location after the concert ends.
  • Consider bringing a small flashlight or turning on the light on your smartphone as the paths around Chautauqua can be quite dark after concerts.
