Spring shuttle service resumes April 9th, 2016.

The Coloma Shuttle is a nonprofit organization providing shuttle services to the private boaters of the South Fork of the American River.

Our shuttle schedules are arranged so that you can eliminate the hassle of “the shuttle” out of your day and the carbon monoxide out of the environment. To read more about the Shuttle program and our mission click here


Our inexpensive membership fee of $10.00 per person includes a seat on our 14 passenger air conditioned van (with a trailer rigged for your boats and gear) to/from one of our many shuttle stops.

Are you planning a full day on the river? We offer a discount for full river runners. Give us a call at 530-303-2404 for more information on full river shuttles.
