What is the Free Ride?
The Free Ride is a collaborative service of the Town of Breckenridge and the Breckenridge Ski Resort providing public transportation service in Breckenridge.
We offer free public transportation within the Town limits of Breckenridge. See our route and schedule information online, check the bus stops for departure times, or use our Interactive Schedule.
Whether you are vacationing with the entire family, enjoying a relaxing weekend for two, or making your way to work, the Breckenridge Free Ride is designed to make your transit experience a pleasant one. For the betterment of our environment, our goal is to get people out of their cars.
Each color-coded bus route is specially designed to move you within the Town of Breckenridge & to the Breckenridge Ski Resort absolutely free of charge and with ease. View the System Map to determine which buses travel to your desired destination. There is generally never more than one transfer required to get most anywhere within the Town. Next, view the Route Map to determine the name of your closest bus stop. Then, view the on-line schedule timetable for the route. All scheduled service times listed are Departure Times, are traffic and weather permitting, and are listed in minutes after the hour. For example, "0:15" means that the bus departs the listed bus stop at fifteen minutes after each hour, during the normally scheduled operating hours. Multiple times listed for the stop indicate that the stop has a bus departing more frequently and at the times listed. Note that some routes may operate only during certain times of the day or evening.
We strive to do our best to meet our advertised schedule times; however at times, we may be running slightly behind and we do apologize, but safety is our top priority. Please arrive at your stop a couple of minutes early. The bus does not stop unless someone is present at the bus stop. We are also unable to wait for incomplete boarding parties.
The Free Ride Transit System also connects you to the Summit Stage, the free bus system for Summit County. The Summit Stage has buses departing from Breckenridge Station for service to other points within Summit County. If you have any questions about the Town or our transit system, please feel free to ask one of our friendly transit operators. Or call the Free Ride Transit Hotline at (970) 547-3140. It is our pleasure to give you a Free Ride.
All Free Ride buses are handicapped lift equipped for our visitors with disabilities. See our Accessibility page for more information on ADA services.
