Niwot Shuttle Starts

The LTER shuttle between Boulder and the MRS runs daily from SEEC on CU East Campus to the Marr lab.

During the summer field season, LTER shuttle vehicles are used to provide transportation for researchers up from Boulder to the MRS and the Cable Gate parking area below the trail to Niwot Ridge. Registration to ride the shuttle will be open to all that attend orientation and fill out the correct paperwork. Although you are welcome to drive your personal vehicle to the MRS, please keep in mind that there is limited parking space at the MRS. Due to rough road conditions and frequent air sampling, we discourage the use of personal vehicles beyond the gate at the Marr Lab. If you believe that you need to drive a personal vehicle beyond the gate, please speak in advance to the MRS station manager, Kris Hess.

Shuttle timing:

  • 6:15 am Shuttle leaves from SEEC southwest parking lot for MRS Marr Lab

  • 7:30 am Shuttle leaves Marr Lab for C1 and cable gate

  • 3:15 pm Shuttle departure deadline from cable gate to return to Marr Lab

  • 4:00 pm Shuttle leaves from Marr Lab for SEEC

Although we strive to always leave the Marr Lab promptly at 4:00 pm, on Tues/Thurs departure may occasionally be delayed depending on the timing of researchers returning from GLV.
