Spring Shuttle returns for festival season and busiest weekends


Spring Shuttle returns for festival season and busiest weekends

The City of St. Augustine’s popular weekend festival season returns with free park and ride shuttle service every Saturday, beginning tomorrow, March 5 and continuing through Saturday, April 16.

Romanza’s Celtic Festival will take place March 11-13, with the St. Patrick’s Day Parade on March 12, followed by the Lions Spring Festival, March 25-27.  In addition to these festivals, downtown St. Augustine will prove to be a popular destination with the Easter parade on Saturday, April 16.

This year’s free park and ride shuttle service will operate from 11:00am to 11:00pm, every Saturday, starting March 5 through April 16, with two exceptions: Saturday, March 12 and Saturday, April 16, the shuttles will begin operations at 8:00am to allow for easier parking and access to the St. Patrick’s Day Parade and the Easter Parade.

The Lions Spring Festival will provide an additional day of shuttle service on Sunday, March 27, operating from 11:00am to 7:00pm.

All shuttle services are available from three parking locations outside of the downtown area:

The drop-off/pick-up location is the Visitor Information Center (VIC), located at 10 S. Castillo Dr.  The VIC offers full visitor amenities and is just steps from Francis Field, the city’s primary festival location. Check out the City's interactive shuttle map HERE.
