The Free Ride is a collaborative service of the Town of Breckenridge and the Breckenridge Ski Resort providing public transportation service in Breckenridge.
The Free Ride Transit System is operated by the Transit Division of the Town of Breckenridge. It is a municipal public transportation system. The Transit Division is under the Town’s Public Works Department. The Breckenridge Ski Resort also operates some routes that are jointly marketed under the Free Ride brand.
The Breckenridge Town Council is the governing body for the Free Ride Transit System. The Town Council adopts an annual service plan and authorizes the operating funds.
The Free Ride is funded via the Town’s general fund and with grants funds. These grant funds are for operating assistance and for capital expenditures such as buses. The grant funds are from both the Federal Transit Administration and the Colorado Department of Transportation. The Free Ride also collects revenue from advertising on-board the buses and inside Breckenridge Station.
The Free Ride is managed by the Town of Breckenridge.
The Town of Breckenridge and Breckenridge Free-Ride work in collaboration with the Breckenridge Ski Resort transportation department, the Summit Stage, and the Free Ride Transit Advisory Committee in delivering coordinated, intermodal transportation services to the Breckenridge community.
