“This winter pilot program marks the first time that Estes Transit has been able to offer consistent, free, off-season transportation service. The Town is committed to the thoughtful and incremental introduction of year-round transportation options for transportation-sensitive community members. Town staff are grateful to the Town Board of Trustees, Transportation Advisory Board and our transit service provider, Rocky Mountain Transit Management for their support of this pilot program,” said Vanessa Solesbee, the Town’s Parking & Transit Manager.

Estes Transit takes the health and safety of our riders and drivers very seriously. In line with the State of Colorado’s guidance for transportation providers (released Nov. 2, 2020), this service will operate at 50% of seated capacity (or a maximum of 13 total passengers). Face coverings are required on board for passengers and drivers, including children over the age of two. Please do not ride Estes Transit if you are sick, have tested positive for COVID-19, or you think or know that you have been exposed to COVID-19. The service will be funded by operational savings realized due to conservative management of the Town’s 2020 transportation division budget.
