STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, COLORADO-November 25, 2019-With lifts already turning at both ski areas, Steamboat Springs Transit (SST) shifts into high gear starting winter operations for the free local winter bus on Sunday, December 1, 2019 and continuing through Sunday, April 12, 2020.
“With a full complement of seasonal and full-time drivers, SST is ready for winter and moving to our traditional seven dedicated routes for snow season this Sunday,” said Transit Manager Jonathan Flint. “The free local bus is a community asset and one of the most efficient rural transportation systems in the state.”
During the winter, SST pairs the Red Line (West Steamboat, downtown, grocery stores and gondola base) with the Green Line (condominiums) and the Blue Line (also serving West Steamboat, downtown, grocery stores and gondola base) with the Orange Line (The Ponds, condominiums and hotels).
The Yellow Line operates a fixed route to Colorado Mountain College and the Hilltop corridor as well as on-call service to Old Town, the high school, Howelsen Hill and Fairview. The Purple Line runs continuous loop service to the northern condominiums, Yampa Valley Medical Center, Central Park Plaza and the gondola base.
Service on the Red/Green and Blue/Orange routes begins at 5:47am and 6:17am, respectively, and each line offers 20-minute service from downtown starting around 7am.The Yellow Line runs between 7am and 6:10pm with the Purple Line operating between 8:15am and 6:05pm.
Twenty-minute Night Line service reaches West Steamboat, downtown, grocery stores, gondola base, Ski Times Square, condominiums, The Ponds and hotels. The Night Line concludes with the last departure from downtown toward the mountain at 2:28am (3rd & Lincoln) and the last bus from the mountain toward downtown at 3:06am.
SST’s Regional service between Steamboat Springs and Craig makes traveling between these communities convenient, affordable and comfortable. New this winter, the regional service expands to three daily departures in each direction as well as adds inaugural reverse direction service. Even with the expanded options, SST’s regional rates remain the same as last year - $6 one-way for the full route.
