[ARCHIVED] SST Service & Routes Accelerate Into Summer

SST Summer NewsFlash

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, COLORADO-April 4, 2022-Steamboat Springs Transit (SST) will officially shift into its traditional summer service for the free bus starting Monday, April 11. As summer service drives into gear, several enhancements are planned to improve frequency, service, and options for customers. 

“This summer we’re able to return to more traditional service levels with some key improvements for travelers,” commented Transit Manager Jonathan Flint. “We’ve increase evening frequency, returned service to south Highway 40 and improved travel times, all with the goal of providing the best transportation system possible for the community.”

SST SummerSST again combines the Red Line and Green Line for the summer ensuring one continuous loop between west Steamboat/downtown and the mountain. This line provides convenient 20-minute service throughout the day with no transfer required. This year, the Green Line will consolidate some stops to reduce travel time and improve service efficiencies.

Night service increases to every 30 minutes starting April 11. The Night Line and Night Line Condo routes begin at 8pm (toward mountain/condo) and 8:38pm (toward downtown/west Steamboat). The last bus of the evening to the ski area departs Stockbridge at 11pm and the final bus to downtown leaves the Gondola Transit Center (GTC) at 11:38pm. 

The Ponds, Steamboat Hotel. Fairfield Inn, Holiday Inn, and new apartments south on Hwy 40 return to the route rotation. However, SST will not travel into Ski Time Square (STS) due to construction projects. Passengers accessing STS should use the GTC and Burgess Creek stops. 

The successful Yellow Zone, a free, on-demand ride service, transitions from winter to summer. Simply download the app and request on-demand rides within the service area from 7am-6:20pm. The Yellow Zone includes downtown Steamboat and many surrounding neighborhoods. Transfers are required to go to West Steamboat, the Ski Area, or Condominiums

SST’s Regional service between Steamboat Springs and Craig makes traveling between these communities convenient, affordable, and comfortable with two daily departures in each direction as well as reverse direction service. The bus begins with a full loop around Craig and then heads to Steamboat Springs at 5:15am and 6:15am. In the afternoon, the coach departs the GTC heading west at 4:25pm and 5:25pm. SST’s regional rates remain the same as this past summer.
