Road Runner Transit

Road Runner Transit connects the La Plata County areas of Ignacio to Durango and Bayfield to Durango with medical services, jobs, education, and shopping. This is a public transportation system. All routes leave at the scheduled time. It is recommended to be at your stop at least 5 minutes early and visible to the driver.

The bus routes are operated by state (CDOT) and local grants. Its services provide for those who want to continue to live a life that is safe and an equitable option.  As gas prices have increased in recent years, many commuters have found that they can save money by riding the Road Runner. Local support now comes primarily from municipal and county governments.

The Road Runner will stop outbound at Walmart and Mercy Medical Center. Stops on all runs to some locations are now by request due to low ridership. Road Runner links with Durango Transit at the Durango Transit Center.

Route Deviations: Persons with disabilities who need to be picked up on a route. Please call 970-563-4545 the day before your planned trip to allow the driver extra time for your pickup. The Road Runner will travel up to one mile off the main route to pick you up if you are disabled.

Newly added is The Bustang Outrider running from Durango to Grand Junction, Co. where you can meet up with Greyhound Bus Lines or Amtrak Train services. See our website:
