A shuttle service that transports Deschutes river users will begin operating on June 18, according to a news release from the city of Bend.
The shuttle, which primarily will transport floaters back upstream along the popular floating route from Farewell Bend Park to Drake Park, will cost $3 for a day pass, or $1 per ride. The shuttle will operate Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday from 11 a.m. until 6:20 p.m., and will continue throughout the summer up until Labor Day.
This is Bend Area Transit’s fifth year operating the Ride the River shuttle. The service is made possible by fares from riders and sponsorships from several local businesses.
