About the Hiker Shuttle

2021 Season Service Update

February 26, 2021 Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, MCTA will only operate the Hiker Shuttle for the 2021 season. Last year, the Kittatinny Visitors Center and Dunnfield Creek areas were overwhelmed with visitors and vehicles. MCTA will provide weekend and holiday shuttle service from Delaware Water Gap, PA to Kittatinny and Dunnfield Creek with mass transit bus service. Service is anticipated to start in mid-April and continue through mid-October 2021. The most time passengers will spend on the bus (barring an accident on I-80) would be 5 - 7 minutes in any direction.

MCTA understands this decision may not be popular with our most ardent River Runner passengers. Due to the nature of the River Runner service, such as the smaller vehicles used, the length of time passengers can spend on the vehicle, and the potential for swealtering heat that discourages the use of masks, MCTA has determined running the River Runner to not be in the best health interest of our operators and the general public.

However, there is a silver lining ... The Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area has received funding for the Transit in the Park service through the summer of 2025. We fully hope that next year we'll be able to "get back to normal." In 2022, there will be some enhancements to the service. MCTA will be outfitting the shuttles with a computer aided dispatch system to provide the public with up to the second location tracking.

We look forward to a safe and fun hiking season in the Gap. Hope to see you on the bus!
