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.

Durango Transit needs your help!
Public process initiated to address 2018 service cuts

Due to budgetary constraints, which include a decrease in funding from state transit grants, Durango Transit will not be able to operate at current service levels in 2018. In order to be fiscally sustainable, service cuts are necessary.

The city has launched a public process with the goal of finding preferred transit service alternatives that will best meet the needs of our community. It is our sincere desire to align the necessary service cuts with the transportation needs of the community to every extent possible.

What will the process look like?
From not until the end of December, Durango Transit will be hosting an extensive public process to ensure that our ridership, our community, our staff and our stakeholders are engaged in the process. The public outreach process will take a multifaceted approach in order to ensure that all affected parties are identified and that their voices are heard. We will survey the community and our ridership, host public meetings and host targeted stakeholder meetings.

This is where you come in!
It is essential that we hear from YOU! We invite you to take the Virtual City Hall survey here. Please join us for a Transit Open House at the Transit Center on Wednesday, November 1 from 5-7 PM to hear more about the proposed cuts and to offer your feedback.

October Commuter of the Month

Riding the Opportunity Bus in one of Zach Thompson's favorite things to do.

Zach independently rides the Roadrunner bus in from his home in Ignacio. Once he's in Durango, he likes to ride the Opportunity Bus to the Powerhouse Science Center and to Fort Lewis College to go swimming. Zach says "I like the bus and I think it's great!" He appreciates the bus drivers and how they take care of him to get him where he wants to go.
