Free Durango Transit service for Snowdown Parade

Come on and take a free ride to A Rockin' Snowdown Parade on January 31! The City of Durango has partnered with Snowdown, the Durango Business Improvement District, and Ride Responsible to offer free Durango Transit service on Friday, January 31.  For convenient downtown access to the Snowdown Parade, ride the Main Avenue Trolley and all loop routes free of charge, all day long. 

In addition to free regular route service all day, there will be two free special service shuttles operating from 3-9 pm, serving north and south ends of Durango. The southern shuttle will serve the transit stop in front of Mercy Hospital, as well as the corner of Confluence Ave. and Mercado St. in Three Springs (outside of Digs Restaurant) approximately every 40 minutes, beginning at 3 pm. The downtown drop-off location is the Transit Center on 8th Street. The northern shuttle will run between the Transit Center and the Fairgrounds approximately every 20 minutes beginning at 3 pm. The final shuttles to both locations will depart the Transit Center at 9 pm. 

Avoid parking downtown and ride Durango Transit for a fun, stress-free Snowdown parade. Visit the Rider's Guide for detailed stop information.
