LOS ALAMOS, N.M. (KRQE) – Bandelier National Monument will begin its free summer shuttle service to Frijoles Canyon on June 14, 2023. The shuttle will board visitors from the White Rock Visitor Center from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily.

“We are pleased to offer this service to our visitors as in past summers,” says Superintendent Patrick Suddath. “This is one of our busiest times of the year. Parking and traffic congestion in Frijoles Canyon is a chronic issue and the shuttle service helps us to alleviate that. Atomic City Transit and Los Alamos County have been invaluable partners in providing this service.”

The shuttle will stop at the Frey Trailhead parking area before going to the Bandelier Visitor Center in Frijoles Canyon, with the ride taking around 20 minutes. The shuttle will run every half hour on weekdays and every 20 minutes on weekends. The last shuttle will leave each day at 5 p.m.

There is no charge to ride the shuttle, and the ride schedules can be viewed here. It is expected to run until mid-October 2023.
