Ride Glenwood goes to $1 daily fare Monday

GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado – Ride Glenwood, the in-town municipal bus system, will lower and simplify its fare schedule starting Monday, April 15.

The new fare will allow all riders to have unrestricted bus access for $1 per day. The service will also be free for seniors age 65 and up, and children age 5 and under when accompanied by an adult.

Discounted passes, including a weekly $5 pass and a monthly pass for $20, will also be available in the new structure.

The move was made after city officials observed declining bus ridership over the past year after a $1-per-ride fare was instituted in April 2012.

Under the new system, once riders have paid the $1 fare, they will receive a bus card that will be valid for that day. The daily pass can be used each time the bus is boarded within the day by swiping the bus card through the fare box.-

The Glenwood Springs City Council approved the new structure in early February. Council will revisit the revised program in the fall, after some time has passed to track ridership, fare generation and pass demand.-

Details about the new fares and passes will be published on the city website [www.cogs.us] and at local bus stops.
