City’s new bridge connector bus starts Monday
May 13, 2016
The city of Glenwood Springs, in partnership with the Roaring Fork Transportation Authority, will begin a new free north-south shuttle service across the Grand Avenue bridge on Monday.
The new connector bus will provide an alternative mode of travel for pedestrians wishing to get from the north side of the Grand Avenue bridge to the downtown area on the south side of the Colorado River during the construction of the new pedestrian bridge.
It will operate from 9 a.m. until 11 p.m., seven days a week, until March of 2017, when the new pedestrian bridge is scheduled for completion.
The shuttle will complete one round trip every 20 minutes, making stops at the Hotel Colorado on Pine Street and on the corner of Olive and Sixth streets on the north side of the bridge.
In the main downtown area, the shuttle will stop at Eighth Street and Cooper Avenue, and at the corner of Ninth and Grand at Centennial Park.
