Red Arrow Shuttle Bus Schedule
Spruce Meadows/Red Arrow bus fleet is a convenient way of getting to Spruce Meadows without having to contend with traffic and parking.
The shuttle bus will pickup passengers from the north-east corner of the SOMERSET /BRIDLEWOOD LRT Station parking lot - please look for the tent shelter with Spruce Meadows on it (across the street from the back of Lowes).
Guests will be dropped off in behind the east grandstand at the Spruce Meadows Bus Loop (during the International Christmas Market, the drop-off is on the main drive opposite the British House) and will pick you up from that same convenient spot approximately every 30 minutes, depending on traffic. And the best thing of all is that this service is completely free, compliments of Red Arrow Motor Coach.
The bus service is only operational during certain tournament times and is only available on specific days. Dates and times listed are listed here.
