Bustang Bringing Weekend Service to CSU

September 2, 2015 - Denver Metro/CDOT Region 1 - DENVER – Bustang™ is partnering up with Colorado State University to provide passenger service for students and faculty between Fort Collins and Denver.

RamsRoute begins on Friday, September 11, offering non-stop service between Denver Union Station (DUS) and the CSU campus at W. Plum Street and Meridian Avenue.  It will run on weekends – departing CSU to DUS on Fridays at 4 p.m. and departing DUS for CSU on Sundays at4 p.m. Roundtrip tickets will cost $19 and will need to be purchased on-line or through the mobile app. 

To enhance seat availability, the busses, which normally provide service for 50 passengers, will be limited to 45 passengers.  In addition, a maximum of six bicycles can be transported on each trip.  However, bike spots will need to be reserved in advance and on-line.

“CSU enrolls thousands of students from the Denver metro area.  Bustang provides a convenient, cost-effective option for our students to travel back and forth between the campus and the Denver area on weekends,” said CSU Alternative Transportation Manager Aaron Fodge. “Increasingly, a larger percentage of incoming students elect to not bring a personal vehicle to campus.  Bustang helps support that decision while connecting them with Denver and their families.” 

Although RamsRoute is aimed at serving CSU, riders not affiliated with the university also can use the service. 

This is the first expansion of Bustang since the Colorado Department of Transportation’s (CDOT) launched the service in July.  The interregional express bus service connects major population and employment centers and local transit entities along Interstate 25 between Fort Collins, Denver and Colorado Springs and I-70 between Denver and Glenwood Springs during peak weekday commuting times.  The fleet features 13 buses in rotation on each respective route. Each coach is handicap accessible and equipped with restrooms, bike racks, free WiFi, power outlets and USB ports.
