Bustang regional service motoring past expectations

Jul 12, 2016

Bustang, the state’s first-ever inter-regional bus service, is celebrating its one-year anniversary today. And its popularity has exceeded expectations.

Operated by the Colorado Department of Transportation, Bustang has exceeded ridership predictions by 15,000 passengers. And revenue projections by 36 percent.

Bustang offers three major service routes: between Fort Collins and Denver, Colorado Springs and Denver, and Glenwood Springs and Denver. And last month, Bustang welcomed its 100,000th passenger.

In the future, schedules and service options will expand. Just like last year when CDOT added round-trip weekend service between Denver and Glenwood Springs.
