Monarch has collaborated with Bustang, a public bus service operated by CDOT that travels daily from Gunnison to Denver and back. Monarch is the first stop coming from Gunnison and the last on the return. Approximate drop-off times at Monarch are 7am with a pick-up at 6pm. The cost is $8 each way. We also partner with the City of Salida helping to sponsor the Salida Ski Bus. The bus operates on Fridays and Saturdays leaving from the Salida Hot Springs Pool at 8:30am and the bus departs Monarch at 3:30pm. The Salida Ski Bus only costs $5 round trip. In addition to our public transport, Monarch also operates daily shuttle service for our employees from Buena Vista and Salida.
