Thanks for a great 2015 season!

We will be looking forward to 2016.

Operations for our 2016 season will be starting in April depending on weather.  We are waiting for our grant contract from AQMD for the 2016/2017 years and will be posting an update here when we hear about our status.  Thank you for a wonderful 2015 season and we look forward to servicing your shuttle needs in 2016 very soon.


The following information is for future use in 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 one of our many shuttle stops.

Are you planning a full day on the river (we offer a $5.00 discount for full river runners) or maybe just looking to hit your favorite rapids? We got you covered.

Shuttle Schedules

If you are here just for the day or camping at one of the many campsites here in the valley, leave the driving to us.  We offer several pickup and drop-off locations along the South Fork of the American River. Click here to see Shuttle Schedules
