Amphitheatre Parking Shuttle for Events

Although the St. Augustine Amphitheatre boasts nearly 300 parking spots on-site, the parking lot often fills quickly. However, they also provide a free park and ride shuttle where patrons can park their vehicle for free, board a shuttle, and ride to Amphitheatre events. The free parking lots are within one mile of the venue and are periodically patrolled by security. The parking shuttles begin running one hour before events and continue running until one hour after events.

During the event, Ripley’s Red Sightseeing Trains and Old Town Trolleys provide shuttles free of charge to attendees.

About the Artwalk Shuttle

The Artwalk Shuttle is a shuttle-only service, meaning you still have to pay to park in St. Augustine.
