Mountain Metropolitan Transit to Provide Bus Rides to and from the Mountain Festival
Wednesday, August 01, 2012
The Transit Services Division of the City of Colorado Springs, administrator of Mountain Metropolitan Transit (MMT), will provide bus rides to and from the Mountain Festival on August 4, 2012. The bus rides are free for kids under 18 and only a $1.00 for adults 18 and older. Traffic is expected to be heavy and there will be no public parking at America the Beautiful Park. Relax and take the bus, it’s inexpensive and will pick-up and drop-off at four convenient locations in the downtown area. All four bus stop locations are near parking facilities so you can park-n-ride.
Four buses will run approximately every 15 minutes from Noon until 8:00 p.m. picking-up and dropping-off at these locations:
- Cascade Avenue and Bijou Street
- Kiowa Street and Nevada Avenue
- Nevada Avenue and Colorado Avenue
- Cascade Avenue and Vermijo Street
Buses will travel between America the Beautiful Park, where the Mountain Festival is being held, and the downtown bus stops with the last bus departing America the Beautiful Park at 9:00 p.m.
