If you have been around town, you may have noticed our free Ride Glenwood buses are sporting a new look. Ride Glenwood hasnt had its own identity since 1998. The city decided to give its local free bus its own identity to help tourists and others distinguish it from Roaring Fork Transportation Authoritys (RFTA) buses. The buses are now sporting graphically appealing new vinyl bus wraps, which represent many of the facets of the Glenwood Springs community. The bus wrap designs aim is the promotion of transit as a free and easy way to help keep our community green. Its purpose was also to help promote the many activities our local businesses and public land use provide. Additionally, the design is presented in a manner that corresponds with Ride Glenwood Springs efforts to provide safe, professional and efficient service. Local residents have become familiar with our RFTA look. Glenwood Springs City Council and other community members decided it was time to have a fresh new look to represent all the fun activities to do in Glenwood Springs. The new look suggests to locals and visitors the diversity of things to do and places to go in Glenwood in all seasons. Each bus carries three to five images per side. The photographs represent everything from Hanging Lake, to rafting on the Colorado River, to snowboarding and skiing. We feel the new look and graphics say we are a friendly service in a fun city that strives to keep its community green. Ride Glenwood Springs works very hard to fulfill the needs of our community members and its visitors by providing a green alternative to driving a car. Additionally, Ride Glenwood Springs service is free.For information about bus schedules, where to find local trail maps or other transportation options, please call 384-6437, go to or e-mail Harris is transportation manager for the city of Glenwood Springs.
