Shuttle & Parking

For those who want to save on gas (or for those who can't drive yet) head to the Red Barn Park & Ride area at the base of the mountain and hop on the Park & Ride Mt. Express Shuttle. This is a FREE service provided by a partnership with the Selkirks Pend Oreille Transit (SPOT) bus system. Riders will be able to connect directly from Sandpoint to the shuttle or catch the bus at the Schweitzer Red Barn Parking lot.  View SPOT's Schedule.

** Please note - Due to our early closing for the winter season, the last day for bus service to Schweitzer's village from the Red Barn will be Saturday, March 21, 2020. **

Selkirk Recreation District SRD Shuttle

** As of March 15, 2020, SRD will no longer be offering their shuttle service on the mountain for the remainder of the season. Thank you! **

The SRD provides service to all residences above the Fire Station Roundabout during peak weekends and select holidays.  Selkirk Rec. District Schedule or call 208.610.8980.
