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 15 – 20 minutes, and operates 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. every day of the Tulip Time Festival.

Riders must purchase a Park & Ride wristband to board the shuttle.  The wristband will allow unlimited rides on the Park & Ride shuttle and on the MAX fixed route buses.  MAX bus passes or punch passes will not be accepted as fares on the shuttle, and transfers are not issued.

Each wristband is valid from May 4 – May 12.

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 when thousands of visitors are heading into or out of downtown.  The shuttles will arrive at their designated stops approximately every 15 – 20 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.

The shuttle and the MAX fixed route buses  DO NOT connect with the Downtown Holland Park & Ride Shuttle.  All MAX route buses arrive at the Louis Padnos Center (depot) at :50 each hour.
