Southwest Colorado

Regional Transit Feasibility Study


The Region 9 Economic Development District (EDD) of Southwest Colorado - which includes the counties of Archuleta, Dolores, La Plata, Montezuma, and San Juan as well as two Native American Indian Reservations (Southern Ute and Ute Mountain Indian Reservations) - contracted with LSC Transportation Consultants, Inc. to conduct the Southwest Colorado Regional Transit Feasibility Study.

The primary focus of this project is to determine the needs for regional transit services and to identify the most feasible, cost-effective, and efficient means of providing transit services along potential transit corridors. One of the strategic directions that the Region 9 EED of Southwest Colorado has identified is the potential of transit service along the major corridors - US Highway 160 between Pagosa Springs, Durango, and Cortez; US Highway 491 to Dove Creek; State Highway 145 to Rico; and US Highway 550 from Silverton to potential extensions into Farmington and Aztec, New Mexico.

Ultimately, LSC will propose recommendations on service design and estimate preliminary cost and ridership forcasts.


The Final Report is now available for review.
