Join the Conversation & Learn More about the San Luis Valley Transit Plan

In 2021, The Chaffee Shuttle was awarded funding from the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) to conduct a transit planning study for Region 5, including the San Luis Valley and Chaffee County. This study will identify existing transit challenges and opportunities in the Region, seek input from community members and stakeholders about how mobility could be improved, and develop a plan to meet the needs of community members, employers, and employees in the San Luis Valley/Chaffee County.

Get Involved!

We are requesting community feedback on transit service alternatives to help inform recommendations advanced in the Transit Plan. We are asking for community members and stakeholders to complete a brief survey to help us understand which transit features are most important.

The survey can be accessed through this link and is also provided on the project webpage at

The survey will close on Friday, December 24th, so please be sure to have your say in the future of transit in the region!
