Kennesaw Mountain Increases Fees for Shuttle Bus
Contact: Anthony Winegar, 770-427-4686
Kennesaw Mountain's shuttle bus operates on weekends and major holidays to take visitors to the top of the mountain. Beginning Saturday, May 18th, shuttle bus fees will increase by the following amounts:
Kennesaw Mountain's shuttle bus service enhances the visitor's safety and park experience by allowing them to walk or run up the mountain road without the volume of constant vehicular traffic. The fees collected each year for the operation of this service cover 35% of our cost to operate the shuttle bus. This transportation fee increase helps offset the cost of the shuttle bus operation which will allow park officials to divert funds back into park operations.
