Steamboat Springs Transit
Steamboat Springs Transit has relocated two transit stops. The Fairfield Inn bus stop is not available for passenger pick-up/drop-off in this location as buses will only be turning around in the driveway/US Highway 40. Passengers need to use the Steamboat Hotel or Holiday Inn bus stops over the next three to four months due to hotel construction in this area. 

On the west side of town, the Elk River Road bus stop has been temporarily moved to the east (towards downtown). Temporary bus stop signage with departure times is displayed at the stop. In addition, riders can find out when the next bus is expected to arrive with the RouteShout app available on iPhones and Androids as well as view buses in real-time via the web portal on the transit home page on the city’s website.
