Transportation from Durango to Telluride

I too am looking for public transportation from Durango to Telluride. Is there a bus that might at least go to Ridgeway or from Cortez to Telluride? Where can I find local bus routes and schedules?

There is no public transportation from Durango to Telluride or Ridgway at this time, that I know of. There are some shuttles, however. Here are two options, and there could be others: http://www.tellurideexpress.com/

The best way to get to Telluride without renting a car or taking a shuttle is to fly in. I believe that the shuttle from Montrose is the least expensive shuttle option.

Greyhound Bus service was discontinued a few years ago to many of the smaller communities in Colorado...just not enough business to keep the routes from losing money.

My group is flying into DRO and renting an SUV. There are four of us and it makes the most economic sense.

I am wondering if anyone can tell me how driving is on US-160 or CO-145? Any passes or rough terrain? I drove from Denver to Steamboat a few years back and I remember there being only one pass and that the driving was a piece of cake.

Hwy 160 to Mancos is a major 2 lane highway. Turn Right at Mancos on SR 184, then right again on 145. Lizard Head pass is 10,000 ft. but easy to cross except in snowy weather. Much less traffic than your trip to steamboat. BTW: more snow yesterday, a little more coming this week.

Also, check weather conditions just so you know what's going on. www.cotrip.org is the best place. I think the "Road Conditions" tab has the best info.
