Getting between Craig and Steamboat Springs is getting easier this winter when SST adds a third trip in each direction and new reverse service to the regional transit system.
Starting December 1, the winter regional service moves to three daily departures in the morning (5:15am, 6:15am & 8:15am) from Craig that travel through Hayden, Milner and Steamboat II before arriving in Steamboat Springs. In the afternoon, return service leaves Steamboat Springs again stopping in Steamboat II, Milner and Hayden before arriving in Craig at 3:35pm, 5:35pm and 7:35pm.
During summer, the regional line only ran two runs between the two cities. With last year’s ridership growth, the goal of the third winter trip in each direction is to expand capacity and continue increasing ridership.
New this season, SST unveils a new reverse direction morning route from Steamboat Springs to Craig leaving the Gondola Transit Center at 7am and arriving in Craig at 8:15am. Similarly, in the afternoon, a coach departs Craig at 3:35pm arriving in Steamboat Springs by 5:14pm.
“There are many folks that need to reach these cities for the day and have expressed a desire for this additional service,” continued Flint. “Now they can take care of business, errands or spend the day while taking advantage of the flexibility and affordability of the regional system.”
The Regional Facility is conveniently located on US40 on the east side of Craig, Colorado. This park-n-ride location offers ample free parking and a warm, safe place to wait for the bus every morning and evening.
Whether traveling in the height of summer or snowy winter, SST's coaches keep you at the right temperature with a top-of-the-line heating and air conditioning sytem.
Even with the expanded service, SST’s regional rates remain the same as last year - $6 one-way for the full route.
With the proper identification, students ride for half price and seniors (65+) ride FREE.
Punch cards, which never expire, are available for $40.00 and provide $60.00 worth of rides.
Purchase Regional Pass at the Transit Operations Center in Steamboat Springs or from the Regional Bus Driver. Drivers do not carry cash and cannot make change.
The Regional Bus service is operated in collaboration between the City of Steamboat Springs, Routt County and the City of Craig. Additionally, the State of Colorado provides FASTER grants that are used to offset a portion of operational costs.
