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 Transportation (SMART) operates a free bus service between Mountain Village and Telluride during the shoulder seasons when the gondola is closed. View bus schedule.

SMART also offers a bus route between Mountain Village and Lawson Hill. Learn more.

The Town of Mountain Village operates a free bus service in the summer between the Meadows neighborhood and Mountain Village Center. This bus is also operated in the winter when the gondola opens until the chondola opens.


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 2023 through October 2024). 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 November 17, 2023 through April 7, 2023. And until 2:30 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays December 15, 2023 through April 6, 2024.
