Colorado Bustang Now Running on Weekends

The Colorado Bustang travels between Denver and Glenwood Springs while stopping in major towns like Frisco and Vail along the way. It is the only form of public transportation that provides a comfortable and safe ride along the I-70 corridor.

Since the Bustang first opened in July, they have been very successful and the public has shown a great deal of appreciation. That is why starting this past Saturday, November 21st the Bustang has extended its services and started running a round trip bus from Glenwood Springs to Denver on both Saturdays and Sundays for the rest of the winter. This is big news for those weekend warriors out there!

There are many reasons why people choose to take the Bustang instead of battling the various obstacles endured while driving on I-70. Daily obstacles of I-70 include weather, traffic, construction and so much more. I have heard some really scary stories about folks driving on I-70 over the years so if it can be avoided, I highly recommend it.

So, give it a shot! Comfortable seats, free wifi, outlets to charge your ipad and a relaxing ride to the high country for a very manageable price. Find out schedule information, rates and more at www.ridebustang.com

SummitCove’s First Highway Cleanup on I-70 a Success!

SummitCove Vacation Lodging recently signed up for Colorado’s Adopt a Highway Program and has sponsored a 2 mile section of I-70, just East of the Eisenhower Tunnel.   This past Friday, members of the SummitCove team suited up in bright orange vests and loaded up with garbage bags, gloves and sunscreen and tackled our first Highway Cleanup Day!  Although we didn’t find any IPhones or bags of money as we were all hoping, we did manage to clean up and pack over 20 bags of trash from the highway!  We found things like rusty truck tire chains, plastic bottles, aluminum cans, tow ropes, bungee cords, cigarette butts, hubcaps and license plates.  We considered the day a huge success and even managed to wrangle some help from a few of our awesome owners!  A big thanks goes out to everyone who participated in the cleanup. Although it really was hard work, bending down and up and down and up in the hot summer sun, we still had alot of fun and helped a great cause- keeping Colorado clean and beautiful!  Our next cleanup day will be scheduled for sometime in August, we’ll keep you posted!  Check out some of the photos from our first clean-up day !

SummitCove is Now a Proud Sponsor of the Adopt-A-Highway Program on I-70

 

SummitCove Keystone Vacation Lodging will participate in the Colorado Adopt-a-Highway Program for the first time this year in order to give back to the community and keep I-70 clean.  SummitCove staff and volunteer homeowners will clean and maintain a stretch of highway located on Interstate-70 at mile points 215 to 217 just east of the Eisenhower Tunnel.  The location is only a few miles west of the Loveland Pass exit that leads directly to Arapahoe Basin and Keystone.

The Adopt-a-Highway program is organized through the Colorado Department of Transportation.  Working on the roadside cleanups  will help to save taxpayers’ money by removing garbage left on the side of the road by careless people.  Our volunteer teams will be provided with safety vests, signs, litter bags and trash disposal.  Cleanups will be scheduled at least four times throughout the year, and SummitCove is committed to the program for at least the next two years.  The litter can be sorted into recyclable items and brought to a recycling center.

Residents and tourists will benefit from our efforts to keep the interstate cleaner and safer for everyone traveling to Keystone.  SummitCove is proud to participate in the program, and our staff is excited to get started on keeping Colorado clean and beautiful.
