City Council Opens Altering of Yellow Bus Line Route to Public

Although Steamboat Springs City Council voted to continue operations of the beleaguered and expensive Yellow Bus Line, it has taken a new approach toward cutting its expenses.Steamboat's Yellow Bus Line stops at one of its more-popular destinations.Steamboat's Yellow Bus Line stops at one of its more-popular destinations.

"We're taking the discussion directly to the public," said City Council member Kenny Pleaseman. "We need to cut back on some of the less-used stops, and we don't really have a clue which are the good ones and which are the bad. And since we can't pay for studies anymore, we're taking it to the people to decide."

The Yellow Line has taken fiscal heat lately, as it's about five times more expensive to operate, per passenger. Well-known stops include those at Colorado Medical-Marijuana College (CMMC) and the few people on Hilltop who can't walk down the hill. However, other lesser-known stops also are on the "chopping block."

"It seems there are several stops that, for some reason, aren't attracting a lot of use," added Pleaseman. "So we're working with the Pirate & Yesterday to get some local feedback. If there are any stops that seem unnecessary, please let us know. On the other hand, if there are additional stops we should be making, we'll take that into consideration as well."
