FirstTracks

FirstTracks is reaching new places throughout Mt. Crested Butte,

and we want to hear from you!

Summer service now in effect through September 29th, 2024.

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. Throughout this first season, we are pleased to share we increased ridership from roughly 21,000 to 49,000 riders, with 40% coming from residences who previously didn’t have access to the bus!

Check out the list above of upcoming public meetings, where you are always welcome to submit public comment at the beginning of the meeting.  If you cannot attend the meeting, please submit your public comment via email to feedback@mtnexp.org 3 business days prior to the meeting for inclusion in the board packet.  Please reference our website here and notifications in the paper and on social media for connectivity information. 

Thank you for your support of fare free public transportation in the Gunnison Valley!

FirstTracks will pick you up at your front door, and transport you anywhere in the above service area, including Mountaineer Square.  Summer service will run from 7:45 AM to 12:15 AM and connect you to our Town Shuttle, the amenities of the CBMR base area or the Gunnison Valley RTA.

Download the app on Google Play or in the Apple App Store to schedule your ride today.

The reviews are in!

Hear what our riders have to say about this new service:

 

All of the drivers were exceptional. They were always prompt, polite, and professional. Because of the convenience of FirstTracks, we almost always made the decision to take the Town Shuttle down to CB instead of driving. Please continue to offer this amazing service!

“Best upgrade to the mountain experience since we started coming in 1983! Love leaving our cars behind!”

“This is what Mt. CB needed! We had no bus service and no easy lift access. This has solved everything!”
