DENVER (AP/CBS4) – Colorado’s first state-owned and operated bus system is now in service.
The Colorado Department of Transportation’s Bustang launched Monday, taking passengers to and from Denver, Colorado Springs, Fort Collins and Glenwood Springs. Fares to ride the buses, equipped with bathrooms, Wi-Fi and charging stations, range from $9 to $28.
“Our busses are over-the-road coaches; they have very comfortable seats, restrooms, free Wi-Fi, plug-ins for your computer, they have bike racks, and it’s really a nice comfortable ride for that longer haul,” Mark Imhoff with CDOT said.
For now the bus is only running on weekdays but weekend service could be added later.
