Do note that (at least the driver yesterday, following what he said was the official route) the shuttle goes: festival-Greenbelt Elementary-Green Ridge House-festival-Roosevelt and then repeats. So, if you're returning from the festival, you can get on the shuttle any time it stops, but it might drive you around for a while, return to the festival, and then take you to your destination. It was a great service, and I'm thankful for it - just a heads-up!

I think the shuttle is a great service too but this year for the first time they did not have several vans as in the past (I was told they're permanently out of commission; the seats were taken out and they're being used by the City to haul stuff) but just the one Greenbelt Connection bus making the route. I heard some people kind of grumbling that they waited an hour for it.

City vans have been out of service for awhile. Insurance issues seem to have made them unaffordable. Rec. dept. tours for seniors have not used them.
