Summit Stage will resume a limited public transit service within Summit County by offering an expanded Mountain Mobility program beginning Monday, March 30. This limited public transit
service will provide necessary transportation as outlined below:

Per the Colorado Governor’s Amended Public Health Order 20-24: “All travel, including, but not
limited to, travel by automobile or public transit, except necessary travel? is prohibited. Public
transit only for purposes of performing necessary activities or to travel to and from work to
operate critical businesses or maintain critical governmental functions. Those using public
transit must comply with social-distancing requirements as defined in Section III.F, below, to
the greatest extent feasible.”

This limited transit service will operate on a reservations basis by calling the Summit Stage
dispatcher at (970) 668-0999 to schedule a trip 24 hours in advance. Some same-day service
may be available.

Critical needs are defined as: critical (non-emergency) doctor’s appointments,
medication needs, groceries and those employees serving in essential sectors of the workforce
(as defined by State of Colorado Public Health Order 20-24).

All requests for a reservation will be screened to ensure compliance with the desired outcomes of the Governor’s Public Health Order 20-24 ( and the
Summit County Public Health Department Amended Public Health Order dated March 23, 2020,
along with an Addendum dated March 26, 2020, in response to the state actions.

Hours of operation for this limited transit service will be from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., seven days per
week with the first pick-up at 7:30 a.m. and the last drop off at 6:30 p.m. To maintain
appropriate social distancing, the number of riders per reservation will be limited.

This will not be “stop to stop” service, but is intended to fill a critical need in our community while ensuring the safety of our riders and our staff. This is not an emergency transportation service. If you have an emergency call 911.
