The Ride is changing

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 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 with Grand Avenue torn up. 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 save time if you ride the bus! Instead of driving all over town transporting your family members, 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. Please visit for bus information.Change 2: City Council considers transit operations planThis week, the city council will consider a five-year transit plan for the city. It will consider 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 Thursday. 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. If you have questions prior to the meeting, please call 384-6437.Change 3: Yellow Route is backRide Glenwood Springs reinstated the Yellow Route on Monday, which runs between the Mall and Wal-Mart every half-hour along Midland and Blake avenues. Now you have four choices when on Grand Avenue: You can ride the Blue, Orange, or Yellow Route, or you can hop on a RFTA bus. It is so easy!Melissa Laeser is the transportation manager If you have questions about Commuter Club, GAPP or other transportation issues, please call 384-6437, e-mail or visit and click on “Transportation” for more information.
