There is now a free shuttle available between Saratoga Casino and Raceway and the thoroughbred track will begin running July 19 through Sept. 1.
This year, the “Jackpot Shuttle”offers all visitors the ability to park for free at the casino and ride over to New York Racing Association’s track.
It runs from Wednesday to Sunday starting 30 minutes before the first post and making its last run 30 minutes after the final post.
Visitors can park anywhere in the casino lots and can pick up the shuttle at the bus entrance facing Crescent Avenue.
The shuttle will drop off riders near the clubhouse entrance.
To ride over, guests can pick up the shuttle further down Frank Sullivan Place.
The shuttle makes at least two round trips per hour, but not on a set schedule.
The casino is running a promotion for all guests who ride the shuttle this summer.
Each guest will get a scratch-off worth $10 to $100 in Free Slot Play.
Non-members must visit the Player Extras Club inside the casino and sign up for a free membership card in order to claim their prize.
Current Club members will be able to claim their prize by bringing a non-member friend in to sign up for the Club.
