“The addition of these routes brings us very close to our pre-pandemic service levels,” said the Chief of the Colorado Department of Transportation’s Office of Innovative Mobility Kay Kelly. “To help ensure that we continue on this trajectory, we are continuing to follow federal law with respect to face masks, and are also asking passengers to please purchase tickets in advance, as much as possible, in order to minimize physical interactions with the drivers.”
