The best option for people staying in this area is to either walk or bike. Bike rentals will be available at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre, which is located next to Anastasia State Park. Learn more about the bike rentals.
The shuttle buses are not equipped with bike racks. Therefore, the shuttle bus cannot accommodate bikes.
The professional transportation company is currently planning all route schedules. This information will be published as soon as it becomes available. At a minimum, we anticipate the shuttle will depart for the event field four to five times each morning through mid-afternoon (there will likely be multiple buses each time); and, will depart from the event field back four to five times each night, again with multiple buses. Our absolute goal is to accommodate all passengers in as timely, efficient and convenient manner as possible.
Both the park-and-ride parking location at the Northeast Florida Regional Airport and the extensive shuttle system developed just for this event are ADA compliant, so those who need accessible parking will find the most readily available needs-based accommodations by utilizing the shuttle.
All shuttle routes will be serviced by an ADA capable vehicle equipped with a wheelchair lift. Those requiring such assistance may call to ask for the service, which will be available at each regular shuttle stop. The specific request line number will be determined by the shuttle provider in advance to the event. The request may be made as much as two hours prior to the start of the shuttle system (10 a.m.) through the end of the show (11 p.m.). Those requesting the service should allow up to one hour for from the time the request is made.
There is only one satellite parking facility at the Northeast Florida Regional Airport in St. Augustine. Parking will NOT be provided at other shuttle stops. Riders are encouraged to leave their cars in place and walk to the closest shuttle stop.
Downtown St. Augustine is going to be filled with Gentlemen of the Road Stopover goers from near and far, so parking downtown is NOT the way to go on the weekend of September 13th and 14th. Plus, extensive road closures are planned, so, your “usual” parking spot will likely be unavailable. By purchasing a shuttle wristband, you will be able to travel with ease from the park-and-ride lot at the Northeast Florida Regional Airport in St. Augustine to Francis Field, the Beaches, and other locations in and around the city, all without the hassle of fighting traffic and finding parking!
Friday, September 13 – 10 a.m. to 3 a.m.
Saturday, September 14 – 10 a.m. to 3 a.m.
Children five and younger ride free if accompanied by a ticketed parent or guardian.
Wristbands provide unlimited access to the shuttle system on both days.
Shuttle wristbands offer unlimited transportation on any route on both days.
Cost per wristband:
On or before September 4 – $22.50
On or after September 5 – $30
Because driving into St. Augustine downtown’s narrow, old world streets to find a place to park during the Gentlemen of the Road Stopover will be prohibitive. All the nearby neighborhoods will be restricted to residents only, and access to the few private parking areas will be extremely limited and/or unavailable.
So, the City of St. Augustine, working with organizers of the Gentlemen of the Road Stopover, has developed a shuttle to serve both concert goers and the community during the September 13-14 event. Wristbands for the shuttle offer unlimited rides on all shuttle routes and two days free parking at the event’s satellite parking location.
In addition, wristband wearers get the benefit of Shuttle Perks, loads of discounts available only to shuttle riders.
Shuttle routes will link historic downtown St. Augustine and Francis Field, site of the event, to the satellite parking location at the Northeast Florida Regional Airport, and to hotels, motels and condos along Hwy A1A S. to Crescent Beach, Vilano Beach, those at the I-95/SR-16 interchange, and those near World Golf Village. Its continuous looped routes will allow riders to travel into the city, to the beach, and visit attractions outside walking distance from downtown.
With less cars, we’ll increase public safety during the festival by reducing the mixing of foot and vehicle traffic and we’ll give the Nation’s Oldest City a lasting benefit by diminishing the carbon footprint left behind after the festival.
Anyone who wants to get into and out of St. Augustine during the Gentlemen of the Road Stopover, September 13 and 14, and who wants to avoid traffic and parking hassles should ride the shuttle.
Those who are driving in for the day
First, those who are driving in for the day will want to drop their vehicle at the Northeast Florida Regional Airport, satellite parking central, and hop onboard the shuttle for the 10 minute ride into St. Augustine. Parking is free, and usual shuttle costs apply, so buy early and save.
Anyone outside walking distance
Anyone who is staying outside walking distance to downtown, including those at Vilano Beach, World Golf Village, SR 16 or anywhere along St. Augustine Beach. Leave your car at your hotel and hop on the shuttle!
Many who work downtown
Many who work in the downtown area during this event need the assurance of getting in and out without looking for a parking place.
Remember, the best St. Augustine experiences happen out-of-your-car, so take the shuttle and begin the experience.
