Today marks the start of the fall schedule for the Roaring Fork Valley Transportation Authority. This means that local valley bus services will reduce in frequency and will not run as late at night and on weekends.
This morning’s delays should be no more than 20 minutes as crews set up head-to-head traffic lanes around the circle. The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) recommends drivers take a detour via Mclain Flats and Cemetery Lane, unless travelers need to get to Maroon Creek or Castle Creek roads.
A big snowstorm hit during the X Games this winter, making it hard to get around on the event’s biggest day. But as Aspen Public Radio’s Elise Thatcher reports, the Roaring Fork Transportation Authority still saw record ridership that weekend.
Starting Saturday, residents in need of a ride to Denver can snag a weekend trip on the Bustang service. CDOT unveiled the memorably named bus service this summer, but has been hesitant to add trips on Saturday and Sunday.
