Riding the Summit Stage

The Summit Stage strives to deliver free, safe, reliable and courteous public transportation to all our guests in Summit County.

Summit Stage buses stop at designated stops only, and passengers may not board or disembark between stops. All stops are by request: in advance of your stop, pull the cord to alert the driver.

Cancellations and Delays

 
We make every effort to run on time, according to posted schedules. However, mountain weather conditions, road construction and traffic congestion can sometimes cause disruptions and delays. You can use our SmartBus system to view the location of your bus in real time and obtain arrival-time estimates for the next bus at any bus stop.

Skis & Snowboards on Buses


Snowboards and skis are welcome onboard Summit Stage buses. Please maintain control of all ski and snowboard equipment and ensure it does not block the aisle. Summit Stage is not responsible for any damage or loss of property. Summit Stage buses are not equipped with external ski racks.
