Become a Carrier

Thank you for your interest in becoming an independent contractor delivering your local newspaper! We currently have morning routes available between Rifle and Basalt.

Frequently Asked Questions


How much money can I earn from a route?

Routes have 400 – 2,000 papers and compensation ranges from $200-$850 per month.

What are the advantages to having a route?

Early morning hours can balance well with other jobs or responsibilities; some of our carriers are stay-at-home parents and others have daytime jobs.

How long does it take to do a route? When do the papers have to be delivered?

It depends on how many papers are assigned to a route but they generally take 2-4 hours. The Aspen Times has a delivery goal of 6 a.m. each day. Most carriers deliver 3-5 days per week.
