— Relax.

Steamboat Springs Transit has your safe, free ride home covered on this New Year’s holiday.

Community members who don’t want to chance ringing in the New Year at the Routt County Jail after a DUI arrest have more options than usual for a safe ride home in the wee hours of Friday morning as SST will be running additional service.

After midnight, a bus will depart downtown toward the mountain every 10 minutes.

Riders heading west from downtown can catch the last bus at 3:21 a.m.

The last bus headed toward the mountain area will leave the Stockbridge Transit Center at 2:20 a.m.

The last bus leaves the Gondola Transit Center to go to the condominiums at 2:40 a.m., and the last bus headed from the mountain to downtown leaves at 3:08 a.m.

Riders who want to shorten their waits at the bus stops can use the city’s new GPS tracking map to see where the buses are in real time and plan accordingly.

Riders with questions about the hours can call the bus service at 970-879-3717.

Riders also can visit steamboatsprings.net/transit to see the schedule.
