Free public transit throughout Summit County, Colorado
Summit Stage will offer a limited public transit service within Summit County by expanding the Mountain Mobility paratransit program beginning Monday, March 30th. This limited public transit service will provide necessary transportation as defined in the State of Colorado's Amended Public Health Order 20-24: “All travel, including, but not limited to, travel by automobile or public transit, except necessary travel is prohibited. Public transit only for purposes of performing necessary activities or to travel to and from work to operate critical businesses or maintain critical governmental functions. Those using public transit must comply with social-distancing requirements as defined in Section III.F, below, to the greatest extent feasible.” This expanded paratransit service will operate on a reservation-only basis. To make a reservation, call the Summit Stage at 970-668-0999 to schedule a trip 24 hours in advance. Some same-day service may be available. Hours of operation for the expanded paratransit service will be from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., seven days per week, with the first pick-up at 7:30 a.m. and the last drop off at 6:30 p.m. To maintain appropriate social distancing, the number of riders per reservation will be limited. Critical needs are defined as: critical (non-emergency) doctor’s appointments, medication needs, groceries and those employees serving in essential sectors of the workforce (as defined by State of Colorado Public Health Order 20-24). All requests for a reservation will be screened to ensure compliance with the desired outcomes of the Governor’s Public Health Order 20-24 (https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/6819224-ORDER.html) and the Summit County Public Health Department Amended Public Health Order dated March 23, 2020, along with an Addendum dated March 26, 2020, in response to the state actions. This will not be “stop to stop” service, but is intended to fill a critical need in our community while ensuring the safety of our riders and our staff. This is not an emergency transportation service. If you have an emergency, call 911.
