Fort Collins Transfort Resumes Service on Two Halted Routes
As vaccination rates increase across Colorado, the City of Fort Collins is resuming service on two of its Transfort routes.
According to a press release, Transfort halted service on Routes 11 and 12 in April of 2020 due to capacity limits, low staffing, and decreased ridership brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Starting on Monday (June 14), residents will be able to ride the routes Mondays through Saturdays on the following reduced schedule:
- Route 11, South Transit Center
- first departure is at 7 a.m., last departure is at 7 p.m.
- Route 12, Horsetooth & Ziegler
- first departure is at 6:26 a.m., last departure is at 7:26 p.m.
Transfort is also returning to a regular schedule on Route 16, which will depart from the South Transit Center every 30 minutes on weekdays and once per hour on Saturdays.
Late-night service is still largely unavailable; however, the City runs an on-demand taxi service along suspended routes (2, 3, 8, 14, 16, and MAX) from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sundays.
Residents can schedule a same-day taxi ride by calling (970) 225-4831 between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 5 p.m.
Although the City has rescinded its local face-covering order, masks are still required while in Transfort buses and facilities.
