Bustang offers service to Vail for Burton events
DENVER — The Colorado Department of Transportation has announced its Bustang regional bus service has teamed up with the Burton U.S. Open Snowboarding Championships to offer special service run to Vail today and Friday. Front Range snowboarding fans looking for alternate transportation to Vail from Denver and Idaho Springs will have the option of riding Bustang to the Burton U.S. Open.
“As with Bustang to Broncos, we’re creating transportation alternatives to allow more people the opportunity to enjoy special events without the stress of driving,” Colorado Department of Transportation Director of Transit and Rail Mark Imhoff said. “With Bustang to Burton, passengers can relax and let someone else do the driving. No parking fees, no hotel costs and no winter driving. Simply a worry-free ride to catch a day of world-class snowboarding right here in our own backyard.”
Passengers will have easy access from the Vail Transportation Center to all the days’ events. The Bustang to Burton U.S. Open express coach will depart Denver Union station at 6:50 a.m., arriving in Vail at 9 a.m. It will depart Vail at 7 p.m., returning to Denver’s Union Station at 9:10 p.m. One-way tickets from Denver are priced at only $17, and $11 from Idaho Springs. The full schedule is available at http://www.ride bustang.com.
Bustang offers daily coach service through the Interstate 70 corridor between Glenwood Springs and Denver (with a new stop added in Idaho Springs), and along Interstate 25 between Fort Collins and Colorado Springs. Bustang’s climate controlled coaches are equipped with Wi-Fi access, USB outlets and bathrooms.
Bustang helps further the Colorado Department of Transportation’s multi-modal mission and fulfills a key responsibility to alleviate congestion and offer more travel choices for longer-distance commuters along the state’s major corridors.
