A new app and a free electric shuttle service are now making it easier than ever to get around Folsom’s Historic District.

The Folsom Historic District Association launched a new ride-share app that provides easy access to a free shuttle service—reducing the time spent searching for nearby parking. The app also allows convenient access to information about the Folsom Historic District’s many businesses and services.


The “Historic Folsom Shuttle” app has the familiar look-and-feel of a traditional on-demand ride-share app. The shuttle is operated by the Folsom Historic District Association and operates in the district from 4:30 to 10:30 p.m. every Friday and Saturday.  

Once visitors arrive in the Folsom Historic District and park their car, they can pull up the app, select a destination and hail a shuttle ride. Users are instantly notified of their wait time and can follow their shuttle driver’s location on the map. The shuttles are electric, state-of-the-art, enclosed, seat six people comfortably and have climate control. Visitors are encouraged to download the “Historic Folsom Shuttle” app before their visit.Visitors are encouraged to park in the free parking garage at 905 Leidesdorff Street or any other free parking lots in the Folsom Historic District. While the shuttle service is free, tips are gladly accepted by the shuttle drivers.
