COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.— Beginning Monday, September 28, Mountain Metro’s Route 6 will begin operating on Fillmore Street between El Paso Street and Hancock Avenue. Currently, Route 6 travels a less direct route deviating onto East 4th Street. This new routing is much more direct, provides better access to numerous destinations along Fillmore Street and will improve travel times and on-time performance.

“We’ve been working with City Engineering to construct pedestrian facilities along Fillmore including sidewalks, pedestrian ramps and concrete pads for bus benches and shelters. The result is a much improved corridor for both pedestrians and public transit,” said Craig Blewitt, director Mountain Metropolitan Transit.

Mountain Metropolitan Transit provides local fixed-route bus service and Metro Mobility ADA paratransit service for Colorado Springs and the Pikes Peak region. All buses are wheelchair-lift equipped. Mountain Metropolitan Transit also provides other services such as Metro Rides’ ridesharing, vanpool, and bicycling programs. For added convenience, there are bike racks on all buses for riders who want to utilize the bike-n-bus program.
