Ride Glenwood Springs is Changing

Melissa Laeser, Transportation ManagerSpecial to the Post Independent

Change 1: No More FaresYour kids want to go to the movies. Your mother needs a ride to get her hair done. Your father needs to go to the store. You need to get to work. How can your car be in all places at once? Don’t worry. Ride Glenwood Springs can take everyone to their destinations. And it won’t cost you a dime.Starting this week, Ride Glenwood Springs will be free to ride for all riders. City Council voted to eliminate the fares on the bus system and help make a difference in Glenwood Springs during the reconstruction of Grand Avenue. Parking will be limited in the downtown area with Grand Avenue construction. Riding the bus means you do not have to look for a parking space or worry about orange cones. You will get great service and time will be saved if you ride the bus.Instead of driving all over town transporting your family, put them on the bus, reduce the number of trips you make in your vehicle and take some time for yourself. The schedule is easy, convenient and can take you all over town.

They will be considering changes to the schedule, routes and times the buses operate. These changes could affect your transportation choices. The City Council will take public input on the changes to the buses starting at 6:30 p.m. at the City Council meeting tomorrow (February 17). If you or any of your family is a regular Ride Glenwood Springs bus rider, you should be at this meeting. If you are a resident of Glenwood Springs, you should be at this meeting.
