PUEBLO — The City of Pueblo Transit system is implementing new safety measures while coronavirus concerns continue.

These changes are being made in an effort to continue providing transit services while protecting both the passengers and driver.

During this time, there will no longer be a fare to pay to ride the bus. There will also be no more than 10 people allowed on the bus at any one time, so expect longer wait times.

To get off and get on the bus, riders will have to use the rear door. Those with "mobility impairments or devices" will still be able to get on the bus using the front door. Pueblo Transit says these individuals will be given priority if "demand exceeds the 10-person limit."

The buses will be disinfected in between runs and on a daily basis, but riders should only use the bus when necessary.

The following routes are operating with "60-minute headways as one bus has been eliminated" to these routes:

  • The Pueblo Mall
  • The Bessemer
  • The Berkley Beulah
  • The Irving
  • The Eastside
  • The Highland Park

If you have to use the buses, make sure to practice social distancing while on the bus. For more information on transit changes, click here.

The transit system runs Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. and on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
