DENVER (KDVR) — The Colorado Department of Transportation announced Wednesday that it will resume Bustang to Broncos service this season.

The return will start with the Los Angeles Rams preseason game at Empower Field at Mile High on Saturday, Aug. 28.

Service was suspended last year due to COVID-19 and restricted capacity at the stadium. 

“This will be our fifth season of Bustang to Broncos, and this service has been a huge success in previous years, with full buses for all regular season games and most of the pre-season games,” said CDOT’s Director of Transit and Rail Amber Blake. “The convenience of a parking location close to the stadium and an arrival time about 90 minutes before kick-off provides fans time to enjoy the pre-game festivities.”

CDOT said the roundtrip fare is $30 per person. All buses are climate controlled, equipped with Wi-Fi, a restroom, USB and power outlets, comfortable seats, and wheelchair access. 

“By providing an alternative transportation option for fans, it reduces greenhouse gas emissions, provides a designated driver, and enhances safety by reducing the number of vehicles on the road, and on the highways coming to and from Denver on game days,” added Blake.
