Safe Ride Home


The Safe Ride Home Shuttle is your ticket to evening fun here at RED and Rossland. Operating on a flex-schedule system from 6:30pm – 10pm, Thursday – Saturday. The shuttle costs just $5/person.

Please call 250-362-0080 to book.

Please Note: after 10pm all shuttles must be booked with the driver prior to the last shuttle at 9:45pm otherwise they will go home.


  • The shuttle’s “homebase” is located in front of The Josie Hotel at the Resort Area from 6:30pm – 7:30pm and will take trips to Rossland every 30 minutes if there are guests wanting a ride. At 7:30, the Shuttle relocates its homebase to The Flying Steamshovel until 10pm and will do interval trips back to The Josie Hotel when guests need a ride at 30 minute intervals.
  • If you’re in town when the Shuttle is at the Resort Area homebase, simply give the driver a call at 250-362-0080 and let them know! Same goes if you’re still at the resort if the Shuttle’s homebase is in town starting at 7:30pm.


  • If you’re looking to get a ride after 10pm on Thursday – Saturday, you’ll just need to book a ride in advance. You can either call the driver at 250-362-0080 up until 9:30pm, or book directly with the Kootenay Gateway Office before 4pm.
