Downtown Colorado Springs is rapidly expanding. With the opening of the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic museum, two new sporting event venues, hotels, and urban living options, the City and key stakeholders identified a need for a Downtown Shuttle (DT Shuttle Analysis). The shuttle will provide an opportunity to connect activity centers, support improved quality of life, and enhance the overall character of the city. A comprehensive study, the Downtown Shuttle Analysis was done in 2019 to look at the feasibility of such an endeavor. The fare-free shuttle will run along Tejon Street from Cache La Poudre to W. Rio Grande Street, with 7 to 10-minute frequency. 

Project Timeline

The City is using a tiered approach for implementing the shuttle:

  • Tier 1: Implemented shuttle service Spring 2022
  • Tier 2: Replace Tier 1 diesel buses with electric buses (EV)
  • Tier 3: Upgrade Tier 2 EV buses and/or integrate new transportation technology
