[ARCHIVED] Usher In 2022 By Riding the Free Bus for New Year’s Eve

SST NYE 2 NewsFlash

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, COLORADO-December 27, 2021-Get an early jump on 2022 and the perfect New Year’s resolution to ride public transportation more by hopping on Steamboat Springs Transit’s (SST) Free Bus and leave the driving to the professionals over the holiday weekend. SST will operate its normal night schedule for New Year’s Eve. 

“We will be on the roads so that those who count on us for their transportation needs or evening outing have that option,” said Transit Manager Jonathan Flint. “Plus, the price is right, absolutely free, to ride one of the best regional transit systems in Colorado into the New Year.” 

During dinner and into the late evening, SST plans to provide 10-minute service with extra unscheduled buses (depending on staffing) circulating in the evening hours to help with the anticipated nightly crowds.

As midnight approaches, normal winter service has the final mountain bound bus departing from the Stockbridge Multimodal Center at 11:08pm on Friday evening, Dec. 31. The condominium route will see the last bus leave the Gondola Transit Center at 11:50pm. The final bus out of the Gondola Transit Center toward downtown rolls out at 12:17am; and the last bus from 7th and Lincoln (westbound), will be at 12:31am.

Passengers should consider catching an earlier bus if their plans or work permit. In addition, Uber, Lyft or other transportation options should be kept in mind.  

SST remains under the Federal Mask Mandate which requires all passengers to wear a mask that covers the nose and face. The mandate was recently extended to March 18, 2022, by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA).
