Transfort, the transit agency owned by the City of Fort Collins, will resume some FLEX service on May 18, with three round trips daily between Fort Collins and Boulder.
FLEX is a regional service operated by Transfort that connects Fort Collins and Boulder with additional stops in between those cities.
On May 18, Transfort will begin running the following FLEX trips Monday through Friday:
- Southbound: Departing Fort Collins at 6 a.m., 1:15 p.m. and 3:25 p.m. with stops in Loveland, Longmont and Boulder.
- Northbound: Departing Boulder at 8:09 a.m., 3:18 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. with stops in Longmont, Loveland and Fort Collins.
These trips will serve the regular FLEX express stops in each community. A northbound and southbound stop will be added near the Loveland North Transfer Center using the COLT stops at Lincoln & 23rd south of the Food Bank.
FLEX service was suspended April 18 along with suspensions or reductions on several other routes in Fort Collins. The other suspensions and reductions are still in effect. All Transfort services continue to be fare-free under an emergency order signed in March.
Beginning May 4, Transfort requires that passengers wear a face covering while riding, per a City order signed May 1.
The public is asked to only use Transfort for essential trips and passengers are asked to attempt to keep at least six feet of distance between other customers and Transfort staff. Passengers are also asked to board from the rear doors of the bus unless they are using a mobility device.
Transfort has been disinfecting driver and passenger areas of its buses in addition to regular nightly cleaning. The South Transit Center, Downtown Transit Center, and CSU Transit Center buildings are currently closed, but passengers may board and exit buses at the transit centers.
