Getting Around Telluride & Mountain Village
Getting around Telluride is so easy and free that a car is unnecessary. Blend in with the locals by taking advantage of these fast, fun, scenic and free ways to get around town.

By foot. Telluride’s sweet little downtown core business district with vibrant businesses and restaurants encourages strolling. Mountain Village doesn’t even allow cars in its core commercial district. Bring sensible walking shoes and boots for maximum enjoyment.

By shuttle bus. Named for the famed single track railroad of the same name, the Galloping Goose Transit System offers free shuttle bus service around Telluride and adjoining destinations with plenty of convenient stops for grocery shopping, dining, the Telluride Library and Town Park. Five routes include the Town Loop, East End Express and Lawson Hill. The Down Valley bus costs $1 per ride; Norwood is $2. The town loop bus runs every 10 minutes, 7 am - 8 pm, then every 20 minutes, 8 pm - midnight. Detailed bus schedules for all routes can be found on the Telluride government website.

By air. Well, by cable to be exact. Open daily, normal operating hours are 7 a.m. to midnight for the 13-minute scenic gondola ride that transports locals and guests between Mountain Village and downtown Telluride. Handicap-accessible cabins are available as well as designated pet cabins for leashed pets. Gondola attendants help guests load strollers, wheel-chairs, groceries, etc. Gondolas are equipped with ski and snowboard racks in winter and bike racks in summer. Blankets are also provided at each station for your comfort during your ride. Station locations are Town Hall Village in Mountain Village, Mountain Village Center and Oak Street Plaza in downtown Telluride. Popular Allred’s restaurant, with excellent food, piano bar and stunning views of town from massive picture windows,  is located at the gondola’s midway San Sofia station.

By four wheels. Another free option for winter transportation is Dial-A-Ride which operates seven days a week, 7 am to 12:30 am, November 21 - April 5.
