Summit Stage prepares for New Year’s Eve with extra buses
December 30, 2015
This New Year's Eve, the Summit Stage is preparing to take on additional passengers throughout the evening to encourage visitors and residents to travel safely. On Dec. 31, starting at approximately 8 p.m., the free bus system will operate with extra capacity, as additional buses wait on hold to transport overflow passengers.
"We want to encourage people to use the Stage as their designated driver," Summit County transit director Jim Andrew said in a statement. "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.
The 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 http://www.summitstage.com, or call (970) 668-0999.
