Winter bus schedule starts Sunday

Goodbye, Cinnamon and Aqua lines.

Welcome back Blue and Yellow.

The city of Steamboat Springs on Sunday will starts its winter bus schedule, and riders will notice the transfers, service reductions and more uncommon color lines that irked riders last winter are now in the rearview mirror.

The Yellow Line will again operate on call and provide service to Old Town, Steamboat Springs High School, Howelsen Hill and the Fairview neighborhood.

Riders on the west end of town looking to get downtown or to the mountain also will not see the transfers that were put in place last year at the Stock Bridge Transit Center.

Riders will also have a few ways to better plan their trips through town.

By visiting, riders can see a map showing the location of the buses in real time.

Clicking on a stop will display the schedule for that stop.

A RouteShout smartphone app — which shows the schedules for the local buses — can also be download on Android and Apple devices.

The former Steamboat Springs City Council paved the way for the restored bus service in May when it voted to accept a proposal from Steamboat Springs Transit to not cut its budget and continue using 14 percent of the city’s general fund.

Transit Manager Jonathan Flint also oversaw expanded recruiting efforts to secure enough seasonal drivers to run.
