Transfort, the transit agency owned by the City of Fort Collins, will resume service on bus routes 6 and 7 on Monday, Oct. 5.
Routes 6 and 7 were suspended in April as part of other service suspensions. Route 6 goes from the CSU Transit Center to Swallow Station via Mulberry Street and Taft Hill Road, and Route 7 goes from the CSU Transit Center to Rigden Farm via Shields Street and Drake Road.
Route 6 will run once per hour Northbound from 6:11 a.m. to 6:37 p.m. and Southbound from 6:45 a.m. to 7:08 p.m. Route 7 will run once per hour Northbound from 6:40 a.m. to 7:03 p.m. and Southbound from 7:15 a.m. to 7:35 p.m. These service times differ from previous schedules and reflect reduced service hours due to COVID-19. Passengers should check ridetransfort.com/routes and click the ‘Exceptions’ tab to view the timetables and see the modified service.
Transfort recognizes that some community members rely on buses as their primary mode of transportation and the agency is working toward resuming service throughout the entire transit system. Determining the order in which routes are reinstated is informed by historical ridership data, public outreach and input, operational sustainability, public safety guidelines and other factors. Routes that remain suspended are 9, 10, 11, 12, 19, 92, and GOLD.
All residents can schedule a taxi trip to or from a bus stop along a route that is suspended, or to or from another linked bus stop or transit center. There are no fares associated with these taxi trips at this time. This service is available Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Taxi trips must be scheduled the same day the trip will be taken and can be scheduled by calling 970-225-4831. Call center hours are Monday through Friday from 5:30 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Saturday through Sunday from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. The taxi service will not be available on the FLEX route.
All Transfort services continue to be fare-free under an emergency order signed in March. Face coverings are required on all Transfort buses.
