I see that the Breckenridge Shuttle hooks up with a bus that will take you to Keystone, Vail and BC. Does anyone know more about this? Specifically how long is the ride and what is the price? Do kids ride at a discount?
Summit (County) Stage is free, but has transfers and stops and therefore I think it may take about 45 mins one-way to get from Breck to Key. They are not far as the crow flies, but kind of circuitous by road, at least via the route I've been on.
Here's a thread from this spring with some good info, including Summit County to Vail, $20 rdtrp:
there's a vail daily shuttle that runs during most of the season, but thats about it.
the summit stage hits breck,keystone,ab,copper; but it takes a while.
you might check if theyre going to start up the kab,keystone arapahoe breckenridge bus again; but i'd geuss those days are over(even though theyre getting more people each year and more skiable area).:
As far as I know at this time, chances are they will run the VRExpress on the same schedule as last year (details are listed in the link to archived thread above). But don't quote me on this until it actually starts - which if like last year was about mid-Dec. and ends sometime in late March.
I believe that it was $20/pp. round trip. Don't remember any discount on size of person. Seats were limited so reservations were recommended by phone to Keystone Activities. This bus would take you to Vail Trans. Ctr in Vail Village where you could link up with the ECO Transit bus to Beaver Creek if you wanted.
Now from Breck to Keystone, you could take the regular Summit Stage route via Frisco and Silverthorne - just keep in mind that it may take approx. 1 1/2 hrs. each way. But the Summit Stage offered a Breck to ABasin route via Keystone for most of the ski season in the daytime (no nighttime hours on this route). This route was a quick easy way to Keystone. Their normal routes run from about 6am - 1;30 or 2am). Look up their website and/or call them for more info on a winter ABasin scheduled route. Seemed like that route started around Thanksgiving last winter and ended sometime in April.
Other paid options are Lift Ticket Limo, Summit Taxi, car rentals and of course Greyhound. Greyhound leaves several times each day to/from Frisco/Vail.
