Have You Ever Heard of Bus to Show in Fort Collins?
Live in Northern Colorado, but have a Denver concert to get to? You can now leave the keys at home, and use Bus to Show.
Not only is this a safe way to transport yourself (if you're partying...), but it can save you the hassle of driving to concerts while you make friends who have as great of taste in music as you do -- and carpooling is like, totally great for the environment, too. ;)
Once, on a Friday night, while chin deep in a potato burrito at the Old Town Fort Collins Illegal Pete's (with extra sour cream because that's how I do on Fridays...), I saw an old school bus flashing a new coat of orange paint pull up and load in 20+ twenty-somethings, only to find out later that it was Bus to Show.
The non-profit organization shuttles Northern Colorado concertgoers to Denver venues like Fiddler's Green, Dick's Sporting Goods Park, Red Rocks and even Folsom Field and the Boulder Theatre (fares vary).
Mission: Reducing impaired driving and carbon emissions by promoting and organizing bus service for events. Since our program's inception in 2007, we have consistently moved 10,000 + people each year (almost 25,000 in 2015) and have contributed heavily to the nearly 50% reduction in DUIs in Boulder, CO (our founding city), while simultaneously saving approximately 4600 gallons of fuel last year (compared with 3 people/car @ 30mpg).
