Jan. 2, 2019 - Clear Creek County Communications, Colo. – Clear Creek County’s Prospector Bus had a tremendous 2018, serving 2,986 riders (not including 600 riders for special events)!  That beat out the previous year (2017) of 1,374 riders—a more than 117% increase!

“By offering better and longer service to Clear Creek residents and visitors, we were confident we’d see solid growth,” said John Bryan, Clear Creek County Communications.  “Adding an additional loop in the morning and afternoon gives people better options for getting to work, going to the clinic, or shopping for groceries—all at a very affordable price,” he added.   Fares run $1 (in-town), $2 (town-town), and a 50% discount for seniors, students and children.  Books of ‘10’ tickets can be purchased from drivers for $10---one ticket is good for any length of a one-way trip, saving riders money.

“As we head into 2019, I want to thank the businesses who’ve supported the Prospector (Two Bros. Deli, Georgetown Loop Railroad, Argo Mine, and Two Rivers Realty), the loyal riders and our great drivers,” Bryan added.

The Prospector runs Monday – Friday (no weekends), and is equipped with a hydraulic lift for special needs and two wheelchair accessible spots.
