RIDE THE FREE HOP 2 CHAUTAUQUA
Leave the hassle of parking at home and catch a ride from any one of the convenient Boulder stops and enjoy a stress-free evening!
Established in 1898, the Colorado Chautauqua was not developed with automobile use in mind and has very limited parking space available within the National Historic Landmark boundary. Join us in being part of the solution to help reduce congestion by riding the HOP 2 Chautauqua, a free transit service to the Colorado Music Festival and Chautauqua Summer Series events.
Buses begin approximately two hours before show time and arrive approximately every fifteen minutes until 30 minutes after performance begins. All buses drop off on Baseline between 10th and Lincoln Place (Trolley Stop at Chautauqua Park). It is approximately a 4 minute walk, with an elevation gain of 100 feet, from the bus stop to the Auditorium. LEARN MORE
Parking in Chautauqua Park is limited, however parking is allowed on both sides of Baseline Road in the evenings during June, July and August. Handicap accessible parking is available in the parking lot south of the Academic Hall. For easy access to this lot, enter Chautauqua Park via 12th St.
