Mountain Metropolitan Transit (MMT) is launching the first phase of a new free shuttle service in downtown Colorado Springs. The downtown shuttle aims to make visiting downtown even more convenient. The shuttle will run between Cache La Poudre and Rio Grande streets with stops near Colorado College, Weidner Field, and the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Museum.

"Downtown Colorado Springs is a popular destination with so many exciting events, shops and restaurants," said Craig Blewitt, Mountain Metro Transit Director. "We hope this free shuttle provides locals and visitors an easy way to access all that downtown has to offer."
