Avon Tailors Services Provided Through the Avon Transit Pilot Program
On-demand service will replace the Wildridge Express Shuttle and the Night Rider Shuttle will end service at 10:00 p.m. Pilot Program will continue through April 2nd
Avon, CO – As part of an Avon Transit pilot program, the Town of Avon added two free Transit routes to the regular schedule in early February. The Town contracted with Peak 1 Express to provide these services through April 2nd in order to enhance transit services to Avon residents and guests. Ridership has been collected and reported to the Town on a weekly basis. After evaluating the ridership data, the services have been amended as described below.
Due to low ridership during all service hours provided on the Wildridge Express Shuttle, the Wildridge Express Shuttle has ended all service.
Beginning on Wednesday, March 8th, a new free on-demand service for Wildridge addresses will be provided from 8:00 to 9:30 a.m. and from 4:00 to 5:30 p.m. A rider may reserve at any time one or more one-way rides by calling Peak 1 Express dispatch at 970-423-5193. A one-way ride will be to-or-from a residential or commercial address to-or-from the Avon Station bus shelter during the on-demand service hours. If more rides are requested than available during the on-demand service hours, the caller will be informed that “service is full for the day, please select another reservation time”
