Bustang Set to Bridge the Gap

COLORADO SPRINGS – Bustang, the Colorado Department of Transportation’s (CDOT) interregional express bus service, begins service between Colorado Springs and the Denver Technological Center (DTC) on Monday, Dec. 17, 2018.

In addition to serving one of the largest employment centers along the Front Range, expanding the number of trips between the two cities will help to relieve commuter traffic along Interstate 25, including the 18-mile Gap segment currently under construction between Monument and Castle Rock.

Bustang currently provides service seven times each weekday between Colorado Springs and Denver.

The new circulator route will run four times each weekday – twice in the morning from Colorado Springs to the DTC and twice in the afternoon from the DTC to Colorado Springs.  It will stop at 16 locations between Arapahoe Road/Yosemite Street and the RTD Light Rail Belleview Station (Route Brochure attached below).

A one-way fare between El Paso County and the DTC will be $9.

“In addition to helping reduce traffic on I-25, the route will provide service for people from the Colorado Springs area who have been seeking more direct access to their place of employment in the DTC,” says CDOT Director of Transit and Rail, David Krutsinger. “And with a couple of stops at light rail stations, it’ll provide additional options for people who want to travel to other parts of the Denver Metropolitan Area.”

Ace Express Coaches of Golden contracts with CDOT to operate Bustang.
