Durango Transit

Durango Transit Service Changes Effective May 7th 

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. Starting on May 7th, using a Durango Transit pass, riders can board the Road Runner for service between the Durango Transit Center & Mercy Regional Medical Center. 


Delivery of Residential Wildlife Resistant Containers

City of Durango has begun distribution of fully-automated wildlife resistant containers for Phase I of a two year capital improvement project. The Phase I distribution area was identified through a four-year study conducted by Colorado Parks and Wildlife. This includes residences from 1st St to the South side of 7th St between East 2nd Avenue and East 9th Avenue.  More information about the CPW study, along with maps of the Phase I and II study areas can be found at

One hundred years ago ... Plumb those privies! 

Perhaps in part due to a recent case of smallpox, at the regular meeting of City Council on April 2, 1918, the Councilors discussed privies and ordered an investigation of the number of outhouses that are within the Sanitary Sewer District limits but that were not connected to the City’s Sanitary Sewer System.
