Summit County's local bus service, The Summit Stage is still running on weekends through Sunday, May 24. That day happens to be Arapahoe Basin's "Festival of the Brewpubs." Riding the bus is a great and easy way to get to The Basin and avoid traffic hassles. I am not sure if we will see traffic this weekend like we did last weekend, but riding The Stage is a great way to take the edge off those busiest of days.
The "Swan Mountain Flyer" route runs between Breckenridge, Keystone and A-Basin. Heading towards The Basin, the bus leaves Breckenridge Station at 20 minutes after the hour and starts at 7:20 AM. Heading towards The Basin, the bus leaves River Run at Keystone on the hour and starts at 7:00 AM. Heading back down valley, the bus leaves Arapahoe Basin 10 minutes after the hour and the last bus leaves at 5:10 PM.
There are so many reasons that riding The Stage is good. You can save fuel and money. You can be nice to the environment and cut your carbon footprint. You avoid parking problems on the busiest days. It is easy and relaxing. I encourage all of you to ride the bus every once in a while especially on busy days.
