Memorial Day SST NewsFlash

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, COLORADO-May 24, 2021-As the county prepares to pay tribute to the men and women of the US Armed Forces this Memorial Day, Steamboat Springs Transit (SST) is ready to carry on its tradition of transporting participants to the Memorial Day Ceremony at the Steamboat Springs Cemetery.

“We’re honored to be back this year and again play a small part helping our citizens participate in the Memorial Day tradition,” said Transit Manager Jonathan Flint. 

SST will operate one to two shuttles from the Stockbridge Multimodal Center to the cemetery on Monday, May 31. Starting at 9am, shuttle service will run continuously until last bus departs at 10:40am. Buses will pick up passengers in front of the Stockbridge Bus Depot and drop off at the ceremony. At the conclusion of the ceremony, shuttles will operate back to the Stockbridge from the cemetery. 

All shuttle passengers are required to wear facemasks and buses are limited to 20 passengers. Buses are ADA compliant (wheelchair ramps and securements). Pets are not allowed on the bus, but service animals, within guidelines are permitted. Please arrive early and remember that the service begins promptly at 11am.

Steamboat Springs’ Memorial Day Ceremony is hosted by the American Legion & Veterans of Foreign War and honors the men and women who paid the ultimate sacrifice. Typically, the local ceremony features opening remarks, 21-gun salute, lowering the flag to half-staff and taps. In addition, Boy Scouts place an American flag on the graves of veterans in the cemetery. 

Originally known as Decoration Day, it was created in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971 celebrated on the last Monday in May. This holiday is meant for remembering and honoring military personnel who died in the service of their country, particularly those who died in battle, or as a result of a wound sustained in battle.
