COVID RIDER ALERT

Vail Transit is making every effort to transport passengers in a safe and efficient manner using guidance provided by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. Here’s what you should know:

  • For your safety, starting Dec. 21 buses are running at a reduced capacity of 20 people; plan ahead and expect delays
  • Doors will be closed when capacity is reached; extra buses will be used during AM and PM peak times
  • Face coverings are required by everyone (age 3 and older) while riding on the bus
  • Face coverings are required to be worn at all transit stops when others are present and in the designated mask mandate zone within the villages. 
  • Be respectful of others and create physical separation to the extent possible while riding
  • Plan your non-essential trips during non-peak times
  • Service between Golden Peak, Vail Village and Lionshead has been adjusted to route on the frontage road. As a result, walking will be required to reach pedestrian destinations along East and West Meadow Drive in Vail Village as well as the Vail Public Library and Dobson Ice Arena.
  • Offering an additional layer of protection, Vail has pioneered the use of a Synexis anti-microbial system on all buses.
  • Follow all posted public health protocols
  • Be patient. Be kind.
