Visitors to Joshua Tree National Park can now help preserve the beautiful desert ecosystem by keeping their cars away. A new shuttle service launched February 1, 2018 to take visitors to and from designated stops in and around the Park.
Operated by Morongo Basin Transit Agency (MBTA), The Roadrunner Shuttle Service represents a partnership between MBTA and the National Park Service that has been years in the making. Objectives of the shuttle service include reducing traffic congestion.
A free service for those with a National Park Pass, the shuttle runs every two hours every day (except for holidays) through the end of April. Service will resume in November.
Stops within the Joshua Tree National Park include: Jumbo Rocks campground, Ryan Mountain parking lot, Hidden Valley day use area, Intersection Rocks, Barker Dam and Upper Boy Scout Trail parking lot. Outside of the Park, visitors can catch the bus in Joshua Tree, Twentynine Palms and the Palm Springs Airport.
