Through Labor Day weekend, the Colorado Department of Transportation will have prices for Pegasus routes cut in half for riders looking for an alternative to travel from Denver to mountain towns along Interstate 70.

Pegasus departs hourly from Denver’s Union Station, from 6 a.m to 8 p.m. Friday through Sunday, with limited service on Thursdays and Mondays. Stops include the Denver Federal Center in Lakewood, Idaho Springs, Frisco, Vail and Avon. Passengers also can connect to local transit providers at each stop.

Now, fares from Frisco to Union Station and the Denver Federal Center will cost $6.50. Bustang and Bustang Outrider routes will also begin cut fares on July 1, and rates will extend to Labor Day.
