April First Friday Shuttle Bus

The free First Friday Shuttle Bus allows riders to visit Art Walk events throughout the Pikes Peak region, including Downtown Colorado Springs, Old Colorado City, and Manitou Springs.

First Friday Art Walks in Downtown Colorado Springs, Old Colorado City, and Manitou Springs are free community events that take place on the first Friday of each month from 5-8 p.m.

The Art Walks feature gallery openings, live demonstrations, a chance to meet local artists, shopping and dining, special performances, and much more! Taken together, the three concurrent Art Walks comprise a “Creative Corridor” along Colorado Avenue and Manitou Avenue.

To help make your First Friday experience more convenient and enjoyable, the Cultural Office and our program partners are pleased to provide free ADA accessible shuttle bus service from April through October. Two buses make a continuous loop between Downtown Colorado Springs and Old Colorado City, and a third bus makes a continuous loop between Old Colorado City and Manitou Springs. The stop in Old Colorado City is a transfer point. Park near any shuttle bus stop location, then hop on, hop off!

UPDATE: Due to unexpected mechanical failures, the two buses on the Downtown Colorado Springs – Old Colorado City route will not be ADA accessible on April 5. The bus that serves the Manitou Springs – Old Colorado City route will still be ADA accessible. We will have all three buses ADA accessible for May 3, the next run of the First Friday Shuttle Bus. Thank you for your understanding.
