Transfort Unveils New Service

Transfort, Fort Collins, CO, recently introduced a new weekday express service between Fort Collins and ­Boulder that provides a one-seat ride with limited stops, funded through a federal Congestion Mitigation Air Quality grant administered through the Denver Regional Council of Governments.

“This new regional express service is a culmination of a lot of work and the growing partnership between northern Colorado communities including Fort Collins, Loveland, ­Berthoud, Longmont, Boulder and Boulder County,” said Transfort ­General Manager Kurt Ravenschlag.

“This service is an expansion of an existing service called FLEX currently traveling between Fort Collins and Longmont that Transfort has operated for the past five years. The success of this route has meant that we were able to extend that service further into Boulder County to the city of Boulder, creating an efficient and attractive one-seat ride between the communities of Boulder and Fort Collins,” he added.

Boulder County Director of Transportation George Gerstle said, “Boulder County is pleased to continue this partnership with Transfort to expand connectivity in the Front Range through this innovative collaboration. The addition of FLEX routes between Boulder and Fort Collins increases the number of efficient transportation options available to the public and helps to reduce congestion on key corridors.”

The service provides a new option for commuter travel between the University of Colorado in Boulder and Colorado State University in Fort Collins. The limited-stop service means that travel time is comparable to driving.
