Ore Cart Shuttle Service

Free Community Shuttle

The City of Golden operates the Ore Cart shuttle service in partnership with Colorado School of Mines (CSM).

Free for all riders, there are currently three routes, all considered "pilots" and are refined based on community feedback.
If you have questions, concerns, a problem or an idea, please contact the Ore Cart Helpline at (303) 384-CART(2278).

Know Before You Go

  • Free and Accessible!: This service is free for all riders, and buses are ADA accessible. 
  • No Sunday or Holiday Service:  The Ore Cart does NOT run on Sundays or during designated CSM holidays.
  • Leave your Dog at Home:  As much as we love our furry friends, non-service animals are not permitted on Ore Cart Shuttles.
  • No Bike Racks:  Bike racks are currently not on Ore Cart Shuttle buses, but may be added as a future amenity.
  • Tubing the Creek?:  Uninflated tubes are welcome on the bus, but inflated tubes won’t fit. Please walk your inflated tube along the Clear Creek Trail on the north side of the creek. 

NOTE:  All of the routes are considered 'pilots' and will be refined based on community feedback. If you have questions, concerns, a problem or an idea, please contact the Ore Cart Helpline at (303) 384-CART (2278).
