By 2039, there were no active Earth shuttles to respond to the loss of moonbase Minera Luna San Pedro. One was kept in a museum, where its back was cut off so children ride in it. This "second-hand" space shuttle was eventually recycled and sent to the Moon in 2049. (TV: Kill the Moon)

Bowie Base One was equipped with a shuttle. In 2059, when the Flood attacked the base, Adelaide Brooke ordered Ed Gold to prep the base's shuttle. While the shuttle was being readied, the infected Maggie Cain got in and fired a stream of water up the shaft to the cockpit; though he attempted to seal the door, the water managed to infect him. Knowing that the Flood wanted the ship to reach Earth and its considerable volumes of water, Ed self-destructed the shuttle moments before he fully turned. (TV: The Waters of Mars)
