Travel Advisory

September 16, 2022 - Statewide - I-70 next weekend

Denver – The regular season for Bustang to Broncos also begins on Sunday, Sept. 18, with service to Empower Field at Mile High for the Houston Texans game. And, beginning next week, travel to and from several Broncos games starts on Interstate 70.
Bustang to Broncos, after providing service along the Front Range for five years, is implementing a pilot program this season for fans on the I-70 west corridor. West Line service will be available for the following games:

  • Sept. 25 – San Francisco 49ers
  • Nov. 20 – Las Vegas Raiders
  • Dec. 11 – Kansas City Chiefs
  • Jan. 8 – Los Angeles Chargers

“To meet the travel needs for the significant number of residents (Broncos fans) living in and near the mountain towns west of Denver, we are implementing a pilot program to gauge interest and provide service for those who would like to have an alternative way to travel to and from the stadium,” said the Colorado Department of Transportation’s Division Director of Transit and Rail Amber Blake. “This service is convenient, helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the high country and provides passengers with a designated driver.”

For the West Line pilot, roundtrip fares are $40 from Vail, and $12 from Idaho Springs. A roundtrip fare from Fort Collins or Colorado Springs is $30 per person. All coaches are climate controlled, equipped with Wi-Fi, a restroom, USB and power outlets, comfortable seats, and wheelchair access. Passenger drop-off and pick-up is near the stadium (Lot A) and buses arrive approximately 90 minutes before kickoff, allowing fans to enjoy pre-game activities.
