Contact: Melissa Decker, Summit Stage Transit Supervisor, 970-668-4164
SUMMIT COUNTY – On Monday, April 27, the Summit Stage began operating a spring 2020 limited public transit service on three fixed travel corridors within Summit County. Scheduled service is now available along the following corridors:
Mountain Mobility complementary paratransit service remains open to the public as an application-based demand-response service with full operations daily from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Travel must be scheduled at least one day in advance by calling (970) 389-1041, between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday - Friday. Copper Mountain and Blue River will remain on a demand-response basis. At this time, the Summit Stage will not resume scheduled commuter bus service from either Lake or Park Counties until further notice.
In accordance with the recently amended and restated county public health order, several safety measures are in place on all buses to help prevent the community spread of the disease:
“We hope restoring service to select travel corridors within the County alleviates some of the challenges for those who have traditionally depended on the Summit Stage for transportation,” said Melissa Decker, Summit Stage Transit Supervisor. “We also appreciate everyone’s vigilance in respecting the public health safety measures aimed at keeping drivers and riders as safe as possible.”
Additional information about the spring 2020 limited public transit service is available on the Summit Stage website: https://www.summitcountyco.gov/586/Transit-Summit-Stage. Summit Stage is Summit County’s free public transportation system, operated by Summit County government.
