Travel in Comfort: Garden Begins Shuttle Service around Campus

Fort Worth Botanic Garden Beauty Bus

Guests will have a new option to explore the 120-acre Fort Worth Botanic Garden in comfort as a free, daily shuttle service begins on May 14, Mother’s Day.

The branded “Beauty Bus” route will transport guests from the Garden Center to two other stops: the Japanese Garden and the Shelter House above the Rose Garden. Shuttles will run every half hour from 11 a.m. until close each day the Garden is open.

Staff hope the bus will make the Garden more accessible to all guests.

“The Beauty Bus will be a great addition to the Garden and our overall guest experience,” said President and CEO Patrick Newman. “It will help anyone who is mobility impaired explore our lovely grounds—or anyone who could simply use a lift getting around our expansive campus.”

Garden guests have long requested a shuttle service. From the Garden Center to the Rose Garden is under half a mile as the crow flies, but by foot and on meandering paths, the route can seem much longer. This is especially true for individuals in wheelchairs
or pushing strollers–or if the weather isn’t cooperating.

Beauty Bus service will be free with Garden admission.
