SST Switches Gears Starts Summer Schedule April 15

SST Summer 2019 NewsFlash

Steamboat Springs Transit (SST) will switch gears on Monday, April 15, when it presses the accelerator down on its FREE summer schedule. The summer schedule will be similar to 2018 with the UCHealth Yampa Valley Medical Center service again by request during business hours.

During summer, SST features the Red Line (West Steamboat, downtown, grocery stores and gondola base) and the Green Line (condominiums). Service on the Red and Green routes begins at 6:40 am and 6:41am respectively; and each line offers 20 minute service throughout the day. The last bus for the Red Line is at 7:40pm doing a Red/Green/Red loop before switching to the Night Line.

Also starting early next week, portions of the Green Line loop will be impacted by a DETOUR as the bus stop at Walton Creek/Deer Creek is upgraded. With Chinook Lane reduced to a single lane during work, SST buses will continue down Whistler Rd after the Mustang Run bus stop to a temporary stop on Whistler at Athens Plaza. Buses will turn left onto Walton Creek Rd and use a temporary stop placed at Owl Hoot Trail and Walton Creek Rd during the improvements.

The Yellow Line operates continuous, looped service between Colorado Mountain College and the Hilltop corridor. The Yellow Line operates between 7:00 am and 6:17 pm.  Yellow Line is available for limited on-call service to Old Town, the high school, Howelsen complex and Fairview during certain times. On-call service can be arranged by calling 970.879.3717. 

Starting at 8pm, the Night Line departs from the Stockbridge every 30 minutes with the last bus of the evening departs the Stockbridge at 11pm headed east and Gondola Transit Center at 11:35pm headed west. After the 11pm Stockbridge departure, buses from the west will travel only as far as 13th Street. If the mountain or condo area is your final destination, the Stockbridge 11pm bus is your last opportunity for the evening. Night Condo service starts from the Gondola Transit Center at 8:14pm and runs every 30 minutes. The last condo loop for the Night Condo route heads out at 11:14pm. 

Regional Bus service between Steamboat Springs and Craig also makes a transition during summer. Summer regional service provides two daily buses that depart Craig at approximately 5:50 am and 6:50 am arriving in Steamboat Springs at approximately 6:40 am and 7:40 am.

The evening regional buses depart Steamboat Springs at approximately 4:30 pm and 5:30 pm arriving in Craig at approximately 5:30 pm and 6:30 pm. The cost is $6.00 each way from Craig, $5.00 each way from Hayden, $3.50 each way from Milner, and $1.50 each way from Steamboat II. Punch cards are available for $40.00 and provide $60.00 worth of ride

At the end of 2018, SST put into service a new specialized vehicle which began a new transportation chapter in paratransit services for the community entitled Accesstheboat. With more than 2,000 passenger trips in 2018, the program continues to grow in popularity and is a dynamic component to an active passenger segment SST serves. Accesstheboat Curb-to-curb ADA service is available to qualified individuals on an on-call basis.
