The Durango-Grand Junction bus route gets an upgrade
The Colorado Department of Transportation has leased a newer bus to serve the Durango-Grand Junction inter-city bus route. The bus has been serving the Bustang regional service operated by CDOT on I 25 and I 70. It will replace a 1999 bus.
The bus comes equipped with comfortable roomy seats, a rest-room, USB and 110 outlets. It will begin service with Bustang markings.
Road Runner Stage Lines offers daily bus service starting in the morning in Durango, traveling to Cortez then north to Telluride, ending in Grand Junction, and returning daily as weather permits.
Road Runner Stage Lines has been operating inter-city bus service on the Western Slope since July 15, 2014. The service is a partnership between CDOT, Greyhound and Southern Ute Community Action Programs (SUCAP), a large human service agency headquartered in Ignacio, CO.
The route has stops in Mancos, Dolores, Rico, Placerville, Ridgway, Delta, Montrose and Grand Junction.
