Avoid traffic and parking problems during Tulip Time by riding the Downtown Holland Park & Ride Shuttle, which circulates through Holland bringing you as close as possible to the heart of activities. The shuttle arrives at seven designated stops every 20-25 minutes, and operates 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. every day of the Tulip Time Festival.

Downtown Holland Park & Ride Shuttle Fares

One-way fares for all passengers are $1 per trip. The exact cash fare is required as drivers cannot make change. MAX bus passes or punch passes will not be accepted as fares on the shuttle, and transfers are not issued.

Purchasing a $5 non-transferable wristband for unlimited rides on the shuttle and on all MAX fixed route buses during Tulip Time is more economical. Each wristband is valid from May 5 – May 13.

Wristbands may be purchased at:

Max Office at the Padnos Center (Depot)

By phone by calling (616) 355 – 1010

Shuttle Route

The Downtown Holland Park & Ride Shuttle brings passengers into the Holland downtown area from outlying areas or Park & Ride lots. We do not provide tours, however the shuttle is a great way to get from one side of town to the other.

The Downtown Holland Park & Ride Shuttle runs from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. everyday during Tulip Time, including parade days (Blue Route will close from noon – 4 p.m. on parade days) when thousands of visitors are heading into or out of downtown. The shuttles will arrive at their designated stops approximately every 20 – 25 minutes, and the last shuttle for the day will arrive at each stop between 5 p.m. – 6 p.m.

Park & Ride Lots

Festival-goers may leave their vehicles in any of the designated Park & Ride lots and then board a MAX fixed route bus, or a Downtown Holland Park & Ride Shuttle* into Downtown Holland.

All MAX route buses arrive at the Louis Padnos Center (depot) at :50 each hour, and connect with the Downtown Holland Park & Ride Shuttle.
