As a first step toward ramping up service that has been suspended during the state’s stay-at-home order, Transfort will begin running partial and modified FLEX service on May 18.
The service will run three round trips per day, Monday through Friday:
- Southbound departing Fort Collins at 6:00 a.m., 1:15 p.m. and 3:25 p.m. will stop in Loveland, Longmont and Boulder
- Northbound departing Boulder 8:09 a.m., 3:18 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. will stop in Longmont, Loveland and then Fort Collins
Modification includes stops in Loveland, both NB and SB, at Highway 297 and 23rd, as well as at Highway 287 and 8th.
FLEX service was suspended April 18 along with suspensions or reductions on several other routes in Fort Collins. The other suspensions and reductions are still in effect. All Transfort services continue to be fare- free under an emergency order signed in March.
Transfort requires that passengers wear a face covering while riding, per a city order signed May 1.
The public is asked to only use Transfort for essential trips and passengers are asked to attempt to keep at least six feet of distance between other customers and Transfort staff. Passengers are also asked to board from the rear doors of the bus unless they are using a mobility device.
Transfort has been disinfecting driver and passenger areas of its buses in addition to regular nightly cleaning. The South Transit Center, Downtown Transit Center, and CSU Transit Center buildings are currently closed, but passengers may board and exit buses at the transit centers.
