Save some gas (and a traffic headache) this weekend by riding Bustang and Pegasus to get away.

Details: The two state-run shuttles are offering half-priced tickets though Labor Day weekend. Pegasus, a ride service launched in May whose vans can seat up to 11 people, costs between $3 to $10 for a trip taking off from Union Station.

  • Stops include the Denver Federal Center in Lakewood, Idaho Springs, Frisco, Vail and Avon.
  • The ride departs hourly from Union Station between 6am and 8pm Friday through Sunday, with limited availability Thursdays and Mondays.
  • Roundtrips are available.

Bustang's service consists of a much larger shuttle bus, with multiple routes leading to dozens of locations across the state (full list available on their website).

  • A trip from Union Station to Fort Collins costs $5 with the new promotion.
  • Bustang can take you from Denver to Colorado Springs, and all the way out to Grand Junction.

What they're saying: Colorado Department of Transportation executive director Shoshana Lew said in a release that the half-price promotion was originally intended to run through June, but growing passenger numbers prompted the state to extend the incentive.
