Safety Information

The Breckenridge Free Ride works hard everyday to ensure the safety and security of our riders and employees.

Transit officials are constantly in the field inspecting stations and buses to ensure the safest possible environment.

When you ride the Free Ride, you're never alone - all stations and vehicles have direct communication lines to the Free Ride's Operations Control Center.

The Breckenridge Free Ride is operated under the jurisdiction of the Federal Transit Administration.  Free Ride Personnel are thoroughly trained in emergency response to meet regulatory safety requirements.
