Bustang notches another quarter of 25 percent growth, could soon add Frisco-to-Steamboat route

November 13, 2017

The Colorado Department of Transportation’s statewide bus service, Bustang, has posted another quarter of strong ridership growth with a nearly 25 percent jump between July and November compared with the same period last year.

Those gains come on top of a 52 percent increase in riders recorded earlier this year on the service’s two-year anniversary and an increase of nearly 15,000 riders, or 77 percent, on Bustang’s West Line, which runs through Summit County from Denver to Glenwood Springs.

Since then, more than 12,000 riders have taken the West Line, and there have been nearly 67,000 riders system-wide. The other two Bustang lines connect Denver to Colorado Springs and Fort Collins.
