An expected increase in demand for the Glenwood Springs-to-Denver Bustang bus service during the busy spring break period is prompting the Colorado Department of Transportation to add a second bus to the route between March 15 and Easter Sunday, April 16.

The first bus will continue to depart the South Glenwood Station (27th Street and Glen Avenue) at 7:05 a.m., followed shortly by the second run departing for Denver at 7:30 a.m.

The second bus is scheduled to arrive at Union Station in downtown Denver at 11:10 a.m. It will depart Union Station for the evening return trip at 6:10 p.m. and arrive at the South Glenwood Station at 9:20 p.m.

Arrival and departure times in Glenwood Springs will allow passengers to connect with the Roaring Fork Transit Authority’s scheduled runs to and from the Aspen/Snowmass area.

“We’re increasing service along I-70 because we’ve seen passenger numbers increase significantly in March, especially during spring break,” Bustang Operations Manager Mike Timlin said in a news release. “By adding an extra run, it’ll avoid the need to add an extra bus at the last minute due to a passenger spike.”

Bustang offers daily coach service through the I-70 corridor between Glenwood Springs and Denver (new stop added in Idaho Springs), and along I-25 between Fort Collins and Colorado Springs.
