Beginning in late 2014 or early 2015, a new bus service along the I-70 corridor will provide transportation between Glenwood Springs and Denver. The Interregional Express (IX) Bus Service is designed to connect population, employment centers and local transit providers along I-70. The service will include one round trip per weekday between GWS and Denver Union Station with stops in Eagle, Vail Frisco and Denver Federal Center. Service will be expanded as the demand increases.
This is part of CDOT’s multi-modal mission and works to fulfill recommendations of the I-70 Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement. Busses will be owned by CDOT and leased to a contract operator. The creation of the CDOT Division of Transit & Rail in 2009 gave CDOT the authority to operate transit service. The FASTER Transit program provides the sustainable funding stream to allow the service to continue year after year. I have heard these busses will be very comfortable and have wi-fi.
