Sunday River is served by two transportation systems: an on-mountain Resort Shuttle, and the regional Mountain Explorer. Both are free to ride and operate only during the winter season.
Resort shuttles provide regular service on multiple routes connecting the resort's lodging properties, base lodges and parking areas during the winter season. As the activity center of the resort, South Ridge Base Lodges serves as a hub for the resort shuttle network is where you can connect with the Jordan Hotel route or the Mountain Explorer shuttle for transporation to off-mountain locations.
The Mountain Explorer connects Sunday River with the nearby town of Bethel with convenient stops as lodging properties, restauratns, bars and stores in Bethel and along Sunday River Road. This service is a collaborative effort between Sunday River, the local community and the Maine Department of Transportation for the benefit of resort guests and local residents alike. The Mountain Explorer runs days and evenings during the winter season, with a full schedule and list of stops available at www.mountainexplorer.org.
