Our driver Greg was awesome! I used to ride RTD Nederland bus for years and the mountain drivers are the BEST!
Lots of highway-speed shake on right side by handicap seating. Maybe the second duel tire was low?
This bus all the way to Gunnison from Denver's Union Station is an amazing route! SO grateful you have this, Bustang since I am recovering from a Class3 concussion and cannot drive long distances yet!
