COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.— Beginning Sunday, September 26, Mountain Metro will implement part of our fall 2021 service change package. Due to a shortage of available bus drivers, the remaining service changes will be implemented when conditions improve. The changes being implemented Sunday, September 26, include:
- Route 37 (Hancock Plaza – Colorado Springs Airport): Convert new Route 37 serving the Amazon facility and the Colorado Springs Airport from an express service to a full-service route with additional trips and stops, and ADA paratransit service. Route 37 will be operating as a full-service route, on a Saturday schedule, seven days a week.
- Route 11 (World Arena – PPCC): MMT will address long-standing on-time performance issues experienced by Route 11 on Saturdays and Sundays.
The following approved fall 2021 service improvements will be delayed until bus driver staffing levels improve:
- Route 22 (Southborough via Murray Blvd) – Add Sunday service
- Route 23 (Galley Rd - Blvd) – Add Sunday service
