Bustang discontinuing Colorado Springs – DTC rush hour service

News Release

February 19, 2024 - Southeastern Colorado - Resources being redirected to core Bustang services, including Colorado Springs to downtown Denver

Colorado Springs – Bustang is discontinuing its Denver Tech Center route, a service providing rush hour transit options for commuters living in the Colorado Springs area and working in the DTC, on Friday, March 1. The DTC route currently provides one round-trip each weekday, and those resources now will be redirected to Bustang’s mainline services, including the South Line between Colorado Springs and Denver Union Station, with stops near the DTC.

“While Bustang service has proven incredibly popular and has shown remarkable demand post-COVID, this limited service has not been able to perform at acceptable ridership levels,” said Colorado Department of Transportation Division of Transit and Rail Director Paul DesRocher. “We will continue to grow other Bustang service to offer this reliable and comfortable option to as many Coloradans as possible. It is important, though, for our teams to pay close attention when a service offering isn’t performing well enough to justify the taxpayer investment.”

The Bustang team is working directly with affected customers and nearby employers to help people find reliable multimodal options. Since Bustang’s South Line, linked here, covers a similar alignment- just with different stops near the Tech Center - customers can find good alternate options for their trips, including connections to local transit services at SkyRidge and Colorado stations.
