Transit is here!

The Rico Shuttle leaves Rico from the Enterprise Bar & Grill for Telluride at 7:00 AM Monday through Friday.  It leaves the Telluride Courthouse at 5:30 PM.  Many thanks to Esteban, Christy and Lynda, our volunteer drivers.

Five reason to use the Rico Shuttle

  • It’s cheaper.  A one way trip to Telluride costs $3.00 on the shuttle.  A two way trip is $6.00.  If you buy a shuttle pass, a trip costs $2.00 each way.  A trip to Telluride in a standard passenger car with average gas milage costs $6.50 just for gas.  This does not include wear and tear on your vehicle.
  • You can make new friends and catch up with old ones.
  • You can do other things on the way to work – read, sleep, play video games on your phone, eat breakfast.
  • You can have a beer after work (if you finish at 4:30 or 5:00).
  • You don’t have to deal with the Town of Telluride’s multitude of parking regulations.
