When I arrived at the Carbondale Park-n-Ride Saturday only to see the next local bus was 24 minutes out and no BRTs, I thought, “Oh no, it’s off/shoulder season!”

I am fortunate to have a job I enjoy up in Aspen. Many of us downvalley folk work on weekends. We weekend working warriors would be grateful if we could ever get at least two morning BRT and two evening BRT buses in the off season. Or even an old school e“X”press bus would be better than the Local.

Fortunately I also have a Prius that only costs $6 roundtrip to Aspen and home to Carbondale. The bus costs $12 round trip.  Guess I will drive more on weekends.
