In an Oct. 8 press release, Transfort announced there would be further service reductions, this time on the MAX Bus Rapid Transit Service. The MAX, which serves midtown, the Colorado State University campus and downtown Fort Collins, will be reduced to a 20 minute frequency until further notice. Before, the line typically ran every 10 minutes. 

“This temporary reduction is unfortunate but necessary to maintain system stability,” said David Mullin, senior transit manager. “We will resume normal service as soon as we have adequate staffing to do so. In the meantime, passengers should plan for additional travel time.”

According to the press release, the first southbound and northbound departures will now be at 5:20 a.m. and 5:33 a.m., respectively. Similarly, the last daily departure for the stations will be at 6:33 p.m. northbound from the South Transit Center, and 7 p.m. for the southbound departure from the Downtown Transit Center.

The change comes after staff shortages forced Transfort to temporarily suspend Routes 11 and 12 in late September and a reduction in service hours for Route 16, according to a press release.
