MountainSHUTTLE is a locally owned and operated business that originated as a supportive piece of the BettyGoHard / Kootenay Mountain Bike Coaching initiative. We have been utilizing this shuttle service to support our coaching programs for both summer and winter activities for the past 7 years.
MountainSHUTTLE expanded out of a need to afford visitors, guests, business people and tourists a safe and reliable means of group transportation in Rossland, the Kootenays and beyond. Our focus is getting you to where you need to go so you can focus on your activities; Business or Pleasure.
MountainSHUTTLE, working in a partnership with Rossland Tourism and local businesses, now provides the only dedicated FREE DAILY shuttle service between Rossland and Red Mountain Resort to enable visitors and mountain staff a convenient and cost free transportation alternative.
MountainSHUTTLE currently utilizes two 15 passenger vans. Our vehicles are provincially certified and we hold all necessary provincial licenses and registrations to offer our transportation service. All of our drivers are professionally licensed and aim to make your experience with us a rewarding and memorable one.
