The bus will run eight hours per day, from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. to 7 p.m Monday through Friday. This route is Photo:13605264,left; planned to be operated with a 15-passenger van until ridership requires more capacity. Please note: There are no changes to the current Ride Glenwood Springs service. Ride Glenwood Springs will continue to remain free to all riders and operate on the same fixed route through the city from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily with 30-minute frequency. This new route conveniently connects with the current Ride Glenwood route as well as with the upvalley and downvalley RFTA buses at the Roaring Fork Marketplace.
