Mountain Express (MX) provides ground transportation services to residents of, and visitors to, the Towns of Crested Butte and Mt. Crested Butte and the surrounding community. MX provides services without charge to riders. MX is funded by a portion of sales taxes collected by the towns and a portion of admission taxes collected by Mt. Crested Butte as well as State and Federal grants. The main transit hub in town is located at the Old Town Hall and at the Resort it is located at Mountaineer Square.
Crested Butte Mountain Resort utilizes two electric Eco-Shuttles to transfer guests and their equipment from the Main Parking Lot to the base area of the resort. These Eco-Shuttles each have the capacity to carry 14 passengers and their gear and can travel up to 50 miles on a single charge. As such, they have been able to provide a safe, low carbon emission, energy efficient transportation option with a high degree of customer service for our guests.
It was a little bit of beer, a good pair of boots and a lot of nerve that fueled it. When a vintage Schwinn Spitfire townie is hauling down a rocky mountain side, with only coaster brakes to stop, slowing down is not easy. So it’s not difficult to see where the bold, yet laid back attitude in mountain biking evolved from—it’s the same attitude that pushes people up steep mountains, just to bomb down the other side, white knuckled, and finishing it all off with a 6-pack among friends on a patio somewhere, as casual as a lazy afternoon. The spirit is carefree, yet deeply invested in a sport that emerged from men and women brazenly pushing limits here in Crested Butte, Colorado. Townies are ingrained in Crested Buttians dating back to 1976.
