Bustang to expand service in Colorado (Michael Ciaglo, The Gazette)

The Colorado Department of Transportation’s long-haul bus system is expanding to the Arkansas Valley, with weekday service between Pueblo and Lamar launching Jan. 2.

The new Outrider line along U.S. 50 will operate similarly to the existing Bustang lines that run passengers between Denver and Colorado Springs, Fort Collins and Glenwood Springs. The 38-seat buses will have restrooms, bike racks, free Wi-Fi (where service is available), power outlets and USB ports.

The line will run once a day in each direction Monday through Friday, with a bus departing Lamar for Pueblo at 7:10 a.m. and leaving Pueblo for Lamar at 3:45 p.m.

The trip will take just over three hours and will make stops in Fort Lyons, Las Animas, La Junta, Swink, Rocky Ford, Manzanola and Fowler. The cost for a one-way trip between Pueblo and Lamar is $21 though the fare is less for passengers getting on and off at intermediate stops.

Officials say Bustang will also take over the route connecting Grand Junction to Denver as Greyhound discontinues its service between those cities this summer.

Greyhound officials say the two services will continue its ticketing partnership, allowing customers to buy one ticket for trips requiring both services.
