Beginning Sunday, September 29, Mountain Metro will add Saturday evening service, until approximately 9:30 p.m., to 13 routes and increase Sunday service with buses running every 30 minutes instead of every 60 minutes on five routes:
- Additional Saturday evening service on Routes 1, 3, 4, 5, 7, 9, 11, 19, 22, 23, 25, 27, and 39.
- Sunday frequency from 60 minutes to 30 minutes on Routes 1, 3, 5, 25, and 27.
These transit enhancements improve existing customers’ experience and attract new riders. Funding for the fall 2019 improvements includes approximately $1 million in additional 2019 Pikes Peak Rural Transportation Authority (PPRTA) sales tax revenue as well as fare and advertising revenues.
