ECO Transit will be implementing the following schedule changes to the Leadville and Minturn routes, effective Sunday, March 29:
The Leadville route will be reduced to one bus daily to and from the Vail Transportation Center, via Minturn. The bus will leave the Leadville Park ‘n Ride bus stop at 6:03 a.m. and arrive at the Vail Transportation Center at 7:13 a.m. The return trip will leave the transportation center at 5:10 p.m. and arrive at Leadville at 6:13 p.m.
A second Minturn-to-Vail trip will leave the Vail Ski and Snowboard Academy at 8:07 a.m. and arrive at 8:30 a.m. at the Vail Transportation Center. No additional Vail-to-Minturn trips will be provided in the afternoon besides the Leadville trip.
