Local transit agencies bring home award

Durango Transit and Road Runner Transit were awarded the 2018 Outstanding Coordination Effort Award at the annual Colorado Association of Transit Agencies’ Fall Conference in Breckenridge this month.

The award recognizes the successful partnership that Durango Transit coordinated with Southern Colorado Community Action Agency’s Road Runner Transit in April of this year. The partnership mitigates the impact of the elimination of Durango Transit’s Mercy Route as a part of recent service reductions, allowing passengers to use their Durango Transit passes to ride Road Runner Transit to Mercy at no additional cost.

This successful partnership is an excellent step in service coordination and collaboration in Southwest Colorado, and sets an example for service and funding efficiency across the state. The service is well-used, providing an average of 500 rides per month between Mercy and the downtown Durango Transit Center.
