SUMMIT COUNTY – Summit Stage is encouraging residents and visitors to stay safe this New Year’s Eve by taking the bus to and from holiday festivities. Summit County’s free public transportation system will operate with extra capacity on Dec. 31 beginning at approximately 8 p.m.
“We want to encourage people to use the Stage as their designated driver,” Summit County Transit Director Jim Andrew said. “There are a lot of people in Summit County out celebrating on New Year’s Eve, so we will have extra buses available to handle the expected overflow.”
Summit Stage supervisors will be stationed at key locations throughout the county during the entire evening, dispatching overflow buses as needed on existing routes and schedules. Buses will be on standby at Breckenridge Station at the end of the night to ensure that all passengers traveling out of town get a ride.
“We’re going to do our best to ensure that everyone gets home safely,” Andrew said.
Last buses depart from Frisco to Copper Mountain at 1:30 a.m., from Copper to Frisco at 1 a.m., from River Run in Keystone at 1:25 a.m., from Silverthorne Station to Frisco at 1:15 a.m., from Breckenridge Station at 1:35 a.m. and from Frisco Station (to Breckenridge or Silverthorne) at 1:30 a.m.
Buses on most Summit Stage routes run every 30 minutes during the day and once every hour at night. For maps, routes and detailed schedule information, visit www.summitstage.com, or call 970-668-0999.
