Get Mountain Fair shuttles rolling

Dear Editor,

It’s high time we get the bus on the road. We are contracting with RFTA to have at least one shuttle bus available at the Mountain Fair, July 25-27 in Sopris Park. You will have an opportunity to ride around the Carbondale “loop-ti-doo!”

The reception we received at the June 27 Concert in the Park was awesome!

Thank you, thank you! I know the electric bus was a big attraction.

I’m hoping this building transportation plan will bloom into a communitywide undertaking. I’m still asking for feedback, suggestions, advice, help and more help. Incidentally, Nic Scher, your name for the electric bus, “Cool Fuel Machine,” was super!

Suggestions for bus names are welcome. We also need a name for the organization, perhaps Crystal River Valley Shuttle. Is there a musician or poet out there who could compose a “ditty?”

Bus service for Mountain Fair days alone will cost mucho dinero! Scott has received about $1,000 in pledges. I’ve received $150.

We need more pledges to get the engines roaring and the wheels rolling.

Please call Scott Chaplin at 963-3483 or by e-mail at, or call me at 704-1572. I prefer my pledges in writing.

Are there any “good gremlins” out there who could help me call some of the “enthusiastic shuttle fans” who have given me their names?

Let’s get this bus on the road!

Theo Bird
