DENVER (CBS4) – Hundreds of people resumed their travel plans on the ground once Interstate 70 reopened on Saturday.
Folks at the Greyhound station in downtown Denver lined up early Saturday morning to catch the bus.
Part of the problem was Greyhound couldn’t find drivers who could get to work and get behind the wheel of waiting buses.
Some people were already supposed to be at their destinations by the time they got on the road.
“We were supposed to leave at 6 p.m. last night and be in St. Louis at 12:30 p.m. today,” stranded traveler Steven Weidenkeller said.
Most travelers took the delay in stride. They said, “This is Colorado,” and they’re used to snowstorms putting them behind schedule.
