[ARCHIVED] Yellow Line Moves to On-Call As Summer Service Begins

Yellow Line NewsFlash

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, COLORADO-May 29, 2020-Steamboat Springs Transit (SST) will officially move to its traditional summer service for the free bus starting Sunday, May 31. As summer service shifts in to gear, the Yellow Line will also move to an on-call basis while maintaining transportation options for passengers on this route.

“Providing convenient and reliable transit options for our community remains top of mind for us,” commented Transit Manager Jonathan Flint. “Due to the coronavirus, we’ve had to change lanes to ensure that transportation options for the larger geographic area remain viable and shifting to on-call status for the Yellow Line made the most sense.”

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 gets underway at 6:40 am and 6:31am 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.

The Yellow Line will now provide forty-four on-call locations across its route and spans service from Hilltop to Colorado Mountain College and Fairview neighborhood to the high school. The Yellow Line drives into service at 7am and finishes at 6:20pm. Currently, construction on 7th Street between Oak and Lincoln has temporarily relocated the Space Station stop just up the block. Pickups within the Yellow Line on-call area can be requested a day in advance or on the same day; however, on-call service is on a first come, first served basis. On-call service can be arranged by calling 970.879.3717. 

“SST is considered critical infrastructure and continues to run under Colorado’s Safer at Home order,” continued Flint. “As conditions change due to COVID-19, additional schedule changes may be required in the future, but we’re making every effect to provide the best service possible in the most responsible manner.”

Above normal cleaning, SST buses undergo an extensive sanitization process every night which follows Center for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) and Federal Transit Administration (FTA) guidelines for coronavirus. In addition, paratransit vehicles are cleaned between customers and regional and local buses have drivers disinfecting high touch areas between each loop.
