Multimodal Transportation

Durango is a community that encourages alternatives to using a single occupancy vehicle. Whether you walk, bike, ride our popular Durango T bus and trolley system, or carpool, our Multimodal Division has resources for you. To the left, you’ll find a wealth of information about getting around Durango by modes other than a single occupancy vehicle.

May Commuter of the Month
Ben Thompson bikes his daughter Gillian to pre-school on his way to work.

"We like riding the bike because it slows things down and it is fun for us to chat. We look forward to the spring commute when we can see the geese in their nests or watch a blue heron snatch a fish near the fish hatchery. We try to guess when the last patch of snow is going to melt from Chapman Hill. Riding along the Animas River Trail gets you anywhere you need to go without even hitting a stoplight. If you haven't tried it, you might be surprised how much you'll enjoy it."
