DENVER – The Colorado Department of Transportation is relaunching its Bustang to Broncos service, starting with the Los Angeles Rams game at Empower Field at Mile High on Saturday, Aug. 28. The service was suspended last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the stadium’s restrictions on capacity.

“This will be our fifth season of Bustang to Broncos, and this service has been a huge success in previous years, with full buses for all regular-season games and most of the pre-season games,” said Amber Blake, CDOT’s director of transit and rail.

The roundtrip fare is $30 per person. All coach buses are climate-controlled, equipped with Wi-Fi, a restroom, USB and power outlets, comfortable seats, and wheelchair access.

“By providing an alternative transportation option for fans, it reduces greenhouse gas emissions, provides a designated driver, and enhances safety by reducing the number of vehicles on the road, and on the highways coming to and from Denver on game days,” said Blake.
