Catching the Bus

Unlike some of our big-city brothers, Mountain Line offers customer-friendly service to meet YOUR needs. Buses will stop for you anywhere along the designated route. All you need to do is wait in a safe location and wave to the driver as the bus approaches. No need to hike to a bus stop to catch the bus. The exceptions to this are our West Run and Blue & Gold Routes which have now been made Express Routes in order to keep the bus on time. With a 20 minute frequency that is important on those two routes.

 

Mobility and Other Impairments

All Mountain Line vehicles are accessible for persons with mobility impairments. Additionally, Mountain Line will deviate off of our regular route to pick you up for $0.50 cents. Deviations must be pre-arranged by calling 304-291-7433.
