Breck bus guide

Breckenridge Freeride Bus

Love the idea of getting from your condo to the slopes without having to load up the car? The Breck Free Ride and Summit Stage bus systems are your solutions to ski resort transportation serenity.

Always ending its routes at Breckenridge Station, located at the base of the Breck Connect Gondola, the Summit Stage has three bus lines that transport riders to the slopes of Breck from all over Summit County on a daily basis. As Summit County is host to four world class ski resorts (3 of which are all on the Epic Pass), the Summit Stage makes it easy to try them all out on a ski trip.

With bus stops located at major landmarks and crossroads, the free Summit Stage has one line running south from Boreas Pass, one coming north from Frisco, and a route departing East from Keystone and Arapahoe Basin. Simply head on over to their system map and select your bus route to find a bus stop nearest to you and that stop’s coordinating departure times.

For guests staying in town, the Breck FreeRide is your ticket to transportation freedom. With eight different bus routes, your nearest stop may be closer than you think. Make your way to shopping, dining, or onto the slopes with simplicity, and avoid parking on Main Street. All Breck FreeRide routes converge at the base of the gondola as well and skiers and riders can expect buses to come by their stop at least every half an hour.

New to this season’s bus system, the Summit Stage has added a new bus stop at the Breckenridge Golf Course on Tiger Road, as well as the Breckenridge Express, providing a more direct line from Silverthorne to Breck daily. The Breckenridge Express departs Silverthorne Station at 8:10am and arrives at the Breck Gondola at 8:50am, with select stops at Frisco Station, School Road and Granite Street along the way.

Do you like shopping? The Summit Stage is the perfect way to cruise on over to the outlets at Silverthorne. Choose from dozens of big brand names at discount prices, all located next to the gorgeous Blue River (which just happens to be one of the most popular fly fishing places in the county.)

For those of you planning a night out on Main Street, please don’t drink and drive. The Summit Stage also runs late and can help you get home safe. From Breckenridge Station, the last bus headed south to Boreas Pass departs at 1:05am, and the last bus headed north towards Frisco departs Breckenridge Station at 1:35am.

Enjoy your time in Breckenridge and get out there to explore all the great sights and activities that the mountain and the town of Breckenridge have to offer.
