Getting Around

Easy and Convenient Transportation

Easy and Convenient Transportation

There’s no need for a car when you visit Crested Butte. The valley is easily accessible through a variety of transportation services, including a one-of-a-kind Town Shuttle. The ride is free, and each bus has been painted by a different local artist (we dare you to try and pick a favorite)! Shuttle services are also available between the resort and the local airport, and additional concierge services make it easy to get to dinner, pick up groceries, have them delivered, or even get to the trailhead. We think you’ll find drivers helpful and friendly—it’s the Crested Butte way, after all—and you’ll be surprised by how easy it is to kick back, relax, and let the locals do the driving for you.

Free Town Shuttle

Mountain Express operates a free shuttle between the towns of Mt. Crested Butte and Crested Butte. During the height of the season, it comes every 15 minutes so you’ll never wait long for a ride.

In true local character, every bus was painted by a different local artist—so many it’s hard to pick a favorite. Maybe the Aspen bus. Or the cow bus with the tail hanging off the back. Or the new Mountain Bike bus. We dare you to pick a favorite!

During the summer, Mountain Express also runs a shuttle to the town site of Gothic—trailhead for Judd Falls and home of the Rocky Mountain Biological Laboratory, where you can learn about the mountains and meet world renowned scientists in action.

And during the winter, the Condo Loop and Outer Condo Loops connect the Mt. Crested Butte Town Center to local condominiums. For more information, call 970-349-5616
