About the Mason Corridor
Mason Corridor is an economic initiative enabled by transit. When complete, it will combine transit, trails, public infrastructure and private investment to spur redevelopment along the corridor. Crafted by community members, the vision that was created sixteen years ago is becoming a reality.

MAX is on the Way!
The MAX Bus Rapid Transit system will link major destinations and activity centers along the corridor including the Downtown, Colorado State University, Foothills Mall, and South College retail areas. MAX will operate nearly twice as fast as auto travel along College Avenue, and provide high frequency service every 10 minutes.

The $87 million project is funded 80 percent by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA). The remaining 20 percent is available from the City of Fort Collins, Downtown Development Authority, CSU/Colorado State University Research Foundation, and Colorado Department of Transportation.
