Bustang Weekend Service Starts Saturday

November 18, 2015 - Statewide Transportation Plan - DENVER – Bustang™, Colorado’s first-ever, state-owned and operated bus system, begins weekend service on Interstate 70 this Saturday, Nov. 21.

The Colorado Department of Transportation’s new interregional express bus service will offer one round trip on Saturdays and Sundays: Glenwood Springs to Denver in the morning, and Denver to Glenwood Springs in the late afternoon.  The weekend service is being added due to strong public demand and the route’s success on weekdays. 

This is second expansion of the service.  CDOT began providing non-stop weekend service between Denver Union Station and Colorado State University in Fort Collins in September. RamsRoute departs CSU to DUS on Friday afternoons and DUS to CSU on Sunday afternoons.  

Along with the seven day a week service, Bustang will continue to adjust route scheduling to improve on-time performance and streamline connections with transit partners. Passengers can view the new west route schedule and other scheduling changes at www.ridebustang.com.

Bustang has been connecting major population and employment centers and local transit entities since its inaugural run in July.  In addition to the I-70 corridor, it is also providing a reliable transit alternative for the traveling public along the I-25 corridor, connecting Fort Collins, Denver and Colorado Springs.   

The bus stops at existing park-and-ride locations along each route with fares reflected by length of trip. Multiple trip packages are available at a discounted price as well as a 25% discount for persons with disabilities and seniors 65 years old and older. Bus schedules and fares are available for download online at www.ridebustang.com.
