Why are we doing this?
For the Environment
Global Warming isn't just a buzz word, it is a reality we are all witnessing. It is 35 miles each way to the madison, not including shuttling at the river. That is about 3 gallons of gas per car or more if you drive a truck. Most floaters take two cars to facilitate shuttling. So 6 gallons for each 4 people. We can take 44 people on our bus or ten groups. These ten groups would use 60 gallons of fuel. Taking a full bus of people only uses 9 gallons of diesel. Go green and use the shuttle!
Having a great time on the river is what floating is all about. For many, alcohol is a part of this fun. When overindulgence happens lives are at risk, yours and anyone else on the road with you. Madison River Tubing wants you to be able to have a worry free float from the time you leave Bozeman to the time you return. Each year there are numerous DUI stops involving tubers. Don't be that guy, jump on our shuttle.
For the Resource
We hear from the river managers that parking gets overloaded at both Warm Springs and Black's Ford on the Madison. Our shuttle service helps to ease congestion at these sites which improves the overall experience for all river users and makes the river managers job a bit easier.
