Bus & Dial-A-Ride

We encourage residents and visiting guests to utilize our free bus service as a way to cut down on emissions and lessen roadway congestion. Additionally, if you don’t have a vehicle while living in or visiting Mountain Village, you can access all town buildings, services and amenities at designated bus stops during the summer and shoulder months via our bus service.



By order of San Miguel County Colorado Government, the gondola closed at 9 p.m., Wednesday, March 18.

We will operate bus service with limited passenger numbers until further notice.
