Summit Stage now on reduced winter seasonal hours

The Summit Stage has moved to a reduced winter schedule and now operates on an hourly basis instead of making stops every 30 minutes.

The new schedule can be viewed at Riders can also download the service’s app, called Summit Stage SmartBus in the app store, to see where the buses are in real time.

According to a news release from Summit County, masks are still required on the buses.

The cuts in service are due to the community’s widespread labor shortage. Once the service can staff up, additional stops will be added back into the routes.

For those interested in working for Summit Stage, full-time, year-round positions and winter seasonal positions are available. Applicants must be at least 21 years old and have a Colorado commercial driver’s license or obtain one through the county’s program within two weeks of starting. Bus operator pay starts at $20.93 per hour and includes a benefits package, sign-on bonus and assistance in finding housing.
