PI reporter Will Grandbois will be on the first Bustang ride Monday, with a full report of his experience at Postindependent.com and in Tuesday’s Post Independent.

Monday marks the official launch of Bustang, Colorado’s first-ever state-owned and operated bus system.

Bustang will connect commuters and travelers to and from Denver, Colorado Springs, Fort Collins and Glenwood Springs.

The bus from Glenwood Springs to Denver’s Union Station/Bus Center departs every weekday morning at 7:05 a.m. from the South Glenwood stop at 27th Street and Grand Ave. and 7:15 a.m. at the West Glenwood stop. The bus stops in Eagle, Vail and Frisco along the way.

Tickets cost $28 for one-way trips to Denver, with inter-route tickets as low as $5 and child and senior discounts. They can be purchased online at ridebustang.com/fares-and-tickets. Single ride tickets can be purchased with exact cash onboard the bus, but multi-ride tickets are only available online.
