COVID-19 Transit Limitations
Summit Stage is currently operating a Summer Schedule with evening service ending earlier, around 11pm, due the COVID-19 response. Buses run daily and serve most existing stops. Bus passenger capacity is reduced to 50%, which means a maximum of 30 passengers on our typical large transit buses, and a maximum of 25 passengers on our smaller buses. If a bus is full, passengers will need to wait for the next bus. At this time, we do not have the capability to send additional buses when one overloads.
Face Coverings and Physical Distancing
All passengers 3 and older are required to wear a face covering to help prevent the spread of the virus. The number of riders per bus is limited by 50% and physical distancing is encouraged, as much as is possible. On 2-door buses, passengers must use only the rear bus doors for loading and unloading.
We have openings for transit bus operators. All positions offer excellent Summit County Government health and retirement benefits. Explore job opportunities for additional information, or call 970.668.4170.
Buses are equipped with bike racks from May 1 through October 31 only. Bike racks can accommodate up to 3 bikes max, on a first-come first-served basis. No bikes are allowed on the racks before sunrise or after sunset. Official times for sunrise/sunset are obtained through Google search, with Frisco, CO as the location used. Class 1 E-bikes are allowed on our bike racks. Class 2 and above E-bikes are NOT allowed, as these bikes are too heavy for the racks. Learn how to use Summit Stage bike racks. Summit Stage buses do not have bike racks over the winter.
