More routes coming soon
Transfort recognizes that some community members rely on buses as their primary mode of transportation and the agency is working toward resuming service throughout the entire transit system. Determining the order in which routes are reinstated is informed by historical ridership data, public outreach and input, operational sustainability, public safety guidelines and other factors. Routes that remain suspended are 9, 10, 11, 12, 19, 92, and GOLD.
All residents can schedule a taxi trip to or from a bus stop along a route that is suspended, or to or from another linked bus stop or transit center. There are no fares associated with these taxi trips at this time. This service is available Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Taxi trips must be scheduled the same day the trip will be taken and can be scheduled by calling (970) 225-4831. Call center hours are Monday through Friday from 5:30 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Saturday through Sunday from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. The taxi service will not be available on the FLEX route.
All Transfort services continue to be fare-free under an emergency order signed in March. Face coverings are required on all Transfort buses.
