Who drives the Easy Ride buses?
Easy Ride's drivers are professional drivers employed by the City and County of Broomfield who meet strict guidelines set up by the State of Colorado for transportation providers like Easy Ride. They complete many hours of driver training to receive their commercial driver's license. Drivers are also trained in first aid and CPR before we allow them to transport you! Also, when our drivers are hired, a complete background check is done and references are contacted. Most importantly, Easy Ride selects drivers who are committed to serving others.
Easy Ride is grant funded through DRCOG. All money collected is donations from the patrons.
