Free Downtown Colorado Springs Shuttle service begins Sunday

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- Mountain Metropolitan Transit is launching the first phase of a new free shuttle service in downtown Colorado Springs.

Officials hope this shuttle will make the downtown area more convenient for visitors and those who attend events or work in the downtown area.

The shuttle will run between Cache La Poudre and Rio Grande streets, with stops near Colorado College, Weidner Field, and the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Museum.

“Downtown Colorado Springs is a popular destination with so many exciting events, shops, and restaurants,” said Craig Blewitt, Mountain Metro Transit Director. “We hope this free shuttle provides locals and visitors an easy way to access all that downtown has to offer.”

The first phase of this shuttle service begins on Sunday, May 22 with stops along Tejon Street.

Pickups will be every 7-10 minutes depending on the day and time.

Shuttle hours:

  • Monday-Thursday, 7 a.m.-10 p.m.
  • Friday, 7 a.m.-midnight
  • Saturday, 8 a.m.-midnight
  • Sunday, 10 a.m.-8 p.m.

Phase one will have 13 stops, but more are currently being constructed. Phase two will add more stops, plus other exciting additions that will be announced in the coming weeks.

  1. So where is a map of the route? Any service is useless unless people know all the places where they can get on and off. Does it include any non-downtown area parking locations? Parking is one of the primary reasons I haven’t been downtown in a few years.

  2. Years ago, city transit had free dwtn shuttle buses that ran mostly on Cascade. That was probably discontinued because there were complaints of homeless people being unruly on the shuttles. There was, also, a city transit bus to the Colorado Springs Airport. Hardly anyone knew about this service because it wasn’t advertised. I think that was before Mountain Metro took over the city transit service.

  3. “People don’t want to visit our sucky fund wastes… I know, let’s spend more money to ship em in!!!”
