We provide free local transit options to anyone and everyone, with Fixed Route and Door-to-Door services in the Arkansas River Valley and Fixed Route services in the San Luis Valley. While the service is free, donations are appreciated to help us maintain our operations. Whether you need to get to an appointment, go grocery shopping, or connect with the Bustang to get to Denver, we’ve got you covered!

In 2023, The Chaffee Shuttle is planning to expand our services to meet the changing needs of our region, and your support at this critical time is greatly appreciated. We're excited to share these new developments with our community in 2023!
