FirstTracks is reaching new places throughout Mt. Crested Butte!
Mountain Express was excited to replace our underperforming condo fixed route with a pilot on-demand service at the beginning of the Winter 23/24 season. Since the start of the season, we have seen a large increase in ridership, especially in locations previously unreachable by our previous condo routes. We are thrilled to be able to serve our community in new ways!
FirstTracks will pick you up at your front door, and transport you anywhere in the below service area, including Mountaineer Square. The service will run from 7:15AM to 12:15 AM and connect you to our Town Shuttle, the amenities of the CBMR base area or the Gunnison Valley RTA.
The reviews are in!
Hear what our riders have to say about this new service:

“What a game changer!!! We have been skiing here for a long time. FirstTracks is by far, the biggest improvement that has come to CBMR. Friendly, door to door service, and a free cookie. Thanks Paul.”
“This is what Mt. CB needed! We had no bus service and no easy lift access. This has solved everything!”
