It couldn’t be simpler to get around the festival for FREE with our accessible, air conditioned BATA Bayline shuttle buses, now with WiFi. They stop every 12 – 15 minutes at most festival venues, and we even have some on demand. Just ask at the venue for details if you need extra assistance. Shuttles run Wednesday through Sunday from 7 am until the last filmgoers and volunteers are returned to their vehicles.
Park for FREE on the East Side in NMC’s Cherry Lot and on the West in the Meijer (on US-31) Park-n-Ride Lot near the car wash, and then hop on the Bayline.
With more buses than ever, and service moving both East and Westbound, you’ll get between venues in no time. Our great volunteers are available to help you navigate the route, and some even ride along with you to assist with questions. A new service provided at no cost to you, the BATA Bayline shuttle system runs from Woodland Creek in Acme to Meijer on US-31. This extended route helps folks come in direct from their hotel or ride after parking their car in a safe, lit, FREE lot. If you’ve ridden the shuttle during regular hours or during another festival this summer, our route will differ slightly to offer additional service to more of our festival venues.
Plus, patrons staying at hotels along the bay at select properties will be able to grab the shuttle right from the lobby!
