Prospector Bus Earns All-Time Record Service for October
Nov. 2, 2018 – Clear Creek County Communications, Colo. – Clear Creek County’s Prospector Bus had a record 431 riders last month, beating the previous record of 337 riders in September. In addition to the new record, ridership (through August) surpassed all of 2017 numbers (1,374). As of Oct. 31, 2,424 riders have taken the County’s Prospector bus in 2018.
“From our dedicated riders, great drivers and sponsors, we want to thank everyone for their support in making this happen,” said John Bryan, County Communications and Prospector Director. “Our goal for 2018 was 2000 riders, and we’re excited that so many people are using this reliable service to get to where they need to go,” he added.
In June, the Prospector expanded its hours, adding a morning and afternoon loop; and, also now stops at the Idaho Springs Macy/Ruth Mill Park at 7th ave. and Colorado Blvd. Stops include: Georgetown, Empire, Dumont (Post Office), and Idaho Springs.
