DENVER — Greyhound and Bustang are joining forces in a new ticketing agreement the Colorado Department of Transportation has made to give its passengers more travel options.

CDOT announced Tuesday that passengers with a Bustang ticket will soon be allowed to use that same ticket on a Greyhound bus.

The goal is to allow Bustang riders easier access to other national destinations, while also allowing Greyhound the ability to offer rides to smaller Colorado destinations such as Monument, Loveland and Eagle.

“Securing this interline partnership has been a priority since Bustang’s inception,” CDOT director of rransit and rail Mark Imhoff said.

“The ability to link our local service with the national transportation network provides Coloradans with flexibility, convenience and choice when it comes to traveling throughout the state and the country.”

Starting in July, customers will be able to visit Bustang’s or Greyhound’s website to book a trip.

Which means if you live in Colorado Springs and need to visit Aunt Margaret in Los Angeles, you’ll be able to catch a Bustang to Denver, then hop on a Greyhound bus to Los Angeles without having to buy another ticket.
