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.

Bus Service

The San Miguel Authority for Regional Transit operates a free bus service between Mountain Village and Telluride during the shoulder seasons when the gondola is closed.

NEW FOR WINTER 2022-2023: SMART is now offering a Mountain Village to Lawson Hill bus route. Visit SMART's website for more details.


The Telluride Mountain Village Owners Association (TMVOA), through a contract with Telluride Concierge, LLC, offers Dial-A-Ride as another form of free transportation for our TMVOA member residents and their visitors to and from most locations within our town limits; gratuity is recommended. There is a limit of 200 trips per residence (from November 2022 through October 2023). Once this has been exceeded, TMVOA will charge $5 per trip.

Dial-A-Ride operates seven days a week during the winter and summer seasons (not during shoulder seasons). Hours of operations in conjunction with gondola hours will be 6:30 a.m.-midnight daily Nov. 18, 2022-April 2, 2023. And until 2:30 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays December 16, 2022 through April 1, 2023.

  1. Dial (970) 728-8888 and provide your pickup location, your destination and the number of people in your party. You must have your unique access code.
  2. Telluride Concierge mandates a three-minute wait time at drop-off, if round-trip service is requested.
