Express shuttle service, Pegasus, takes flight

Jun 1, 2022 -- Posted by : goi70

People now have another option for travel along the Interstate 70 mountain corridor with the introduction of Pegasus, the Colorado Department of Transportation’s new express shuttle that began providing passenger service on FridayPegasusPressKit_1.jpg, May 27.

Pegasus will depart year-round from Denver’s Union Station, with stops at the Denver Federal Center in Lakewood, Idaho Springs, Frisco, Vail and Avon. The service will have hourly departures from sunrise to sunset Thursdays through Mondays. A Pegasus shuttle seats up to 11 people, is wheelchair accessible, and equipped with USB ports, power outlets, and Wi-Fi. Each vehicle also has luggage storage, bike racks and ski/snowboard containers. Currently, a one-way fare is only $10. 

One fully-booked Pegasus shuttle is the equivalent of removing six two-person vehicles, helping to alleviate traffic congestion during peak travel times. And Pegasus can utilize the Express Lanes on weekends, when traffic nearly doubles.The service will allow passengers to connect to local transit providers at each stop, making it easier than ever to get to the mountains car-free (or carefree!).
