Transportation Options to Chantry

Shuttle to Chantry Flat:

Thanks to our partnership with the City of Arcadia, REI, and Nature For All, we will be offering a shuttle service from REI’s Arcadia store (214 N Santa Anita Ave) to Chantry Flat. The shuttle will leave promptly at 7 AM. Please consider using this free public transportation option, easily accessible from the Metro Gold Line, instead of driving!

If you plan on taking the shuttle, limited parking will be available at the REI, so please carpool or take the Gold Line.
