Survey highlights 2018.png

July 20, 2018: The results are in! Durango Transit completed the annual ridership survey, receiving over 150 responses.

Durango Transit received a reduction in transit grant funding this year as a result of a policy change at the state level. Facing an approximate $1.5 million annual deficit over the next few years, Durango Transit has been working on modifications to the routes that will meet City Council's goal of a sustainable transit budget, while considering the transportation needs of the community.

The final service changes are a result of an extensive public process, ridership data, operational costs, and opportunities to partner with other agencies to mitigate the impact of service reduction. The service changes went into effect Monday, May 7, 2018. Durango Transit passholders can ride Road Runner Transit to Mercy for free (see schedule below). 

The key changes to Durango Transit service are:
  • Elimination of the Crestview/160 West Route
  • Elimination of the Three Springs/Mercy Route
  • Partnership with Road Runner Transit to provide service to Three Springs/Mercy at no additional cost to Durango Transit pass holders
  • Reconfiguration of the FLC Route on 30 minute headways
  • Addition of the FLC Morning Commuter Shuttle during academic calendar year
  • Main Avenue Trolley service on 30 minute headways
  • South Walmart Route on 30 minute headways
  • All routes extended to 7 day a week service, year round
  • All routes extended to 7:00 am - 8:30 pm service, year round
  • Extended Opportunity Bus service 7:00 am - 8:30 pm, 7 days a week, year round
  • No service on City holidays
