Glenwood Springs has deservedly won awards for being among America's most walkable communities. The trail network gets you anywhere you need to be, and the town itself is compact.

Glenwood Springs is served by RFTA. There are two routes that operate in town: the Valley routes, which run from Glenwood Springs to Aspen and Snowmass Village, and a local circulator route, Ride Glenwood. Fare for Ride Glenwood is always $1, while RFTA fares within Glenwood are also $1. These two routes cover most of Glenwood. South Glenwood is not covered, and West Glenwood on the far side of the Colorado River is covered only by Ride Glenwood. Ride Glenwood terminates early in the evening, but the Valley routes run at all hours, so you can go to Aspen, party all you want to, and still have a ride home.

Make sure to take advantage of the discount RFTA fare cards you can purchase from many merchants in the Roaring Fork Valley, including in Glenwood Springs. The cards offer $20 or $40 worth of fares with a discount; the $40 farecard costs $29.50. While these fare cards are not usable on Ride Glenwood, which just accepts cash payment, they are accepted on the Valley bus to Aspen and Snowmass. The nominal $7.00 fee from Glenwood to Aspen becomes effectively $5.16. Finally, keep an eye on VelociRFTA, a bus rapid transit program that has grand ambitions and is now running.
