Winter Ride Glenwood makes Cardiff Glen stop

Cathy TuttleSpecial to the Post Independent

On Nov. 28, the Winter Ride Glenwood schedule and routes will roll out a few new improvements. On Ride Glenwood all trips will start or end at Cardiff Glen instead of Mountain Valley/Glenwood Park. Also, a new stop will be added in the southbound direction on the Community Center route by the Conoco (south of the West Glenwood freeway interchange). In addition, buses will begin using the new stop near the Community Center on Midland Avenue and will no longer travel into the Community Center parking lot.The Texaco Mountain Market bus stop and the current Mountain Valley/Glenwood Park bus stop will be replaced with two new bus stops located in the same general area on Midland Avenue near Mount Sopris Drive.In addition to schedule and route changes, several new monthly “unlimited use” picture passes will be available starting Nov. 25. These passes are good for unlimited rides from the first day of the month to the last day of the month. The Grand Hogback/Ride Glenwood monthly picture pass is $75, a savings of $101 per month, and the youth Grand Hogback/Ride Glenwood monthly picture pass is $45, a savings of $87 per month. The new Ride Glenwood unlimited monthly picture pass is $20, a $40 savings.
