Space Shuttle

There's room for you

If Elsah is an island, the Space Shuttle is your ferry to the mainland, making stops every weekend at strategic times and locations in Alton, Granite City, and St. Louis. 

Passenger Guidelines and Code of Conduct

The Space Shuttle is a shared transport service. To maintain an enjoyable ride for all passengers, please remember to “do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”

  • Be on time. Please be at your pickup location 5 minutes before your scheduled ride. Out of respect for other passengers, the shuttle will leave the drop-off/pickup location based on the schedule. 
  • Self-governance. You are responsible for your activities beyond the Space Shuttle. Please observe safety guidelines, including maintaining access to mobile/internet connectivity for emergency calls. 
  • Service Disruption. In case of any cancellation or change to scheduled Space Shuttle services, we will do our best to communicate ASAP and take appropriate measures to remedy the situation. 
  • Animals. Animals are not allowed on the Space Shuttle. 
  • Loudness and unruly behavior. Expressiveness is encouraged on the Space Shuttle, but we kindly request that you respect the comfort of other passengers. Unless other passengers are okay with a loudspeaker, we ask that you use headphones when listening to music or watching videos.
