FLEX, Northern Colorado’s regional bus route, connects Fort Collins, Loveland, Berthoud and Longmont with RTD connections to Denver and Boulder. As of May 19, 2014, FLEX will change its Fort Collins terminus, stopping at Transfort’s new South Transit Center, rather than traveling through Fort Collins to the Mall Transfer Point and Downtown Transit Center. Riders that wish to continue their trip into Fort Collins can transfer, free of charge, from FLEX at the South Transit Center to multiple routes, including MAX bus rapid transit to Downtown, Route 16 (Harmony/Front Range Community College), Route 19 (Shields), or Route 20 (JFK Parkway/Post Office).

In addition to these changes, many other Transfort routes are changing in May 2014. To learn more about these changes, please join the City of Fort Collins and the partnering communities of Loveland and Longmont at two open house meetings.
