Greyhound Introduces FlightLink Airport Service to Colorado.
The FlightLink service, operated by Greyhound subsidiary TNM&O, begins March 24, with five daily round trips. FlightLink will offer passengers the convenience of regularly scheduled service and the comfort of a full-size, restroom-equipped bus.
"Travelers can now get to DIA at a reasonable cost to take advantage of the range of air services at that airport," said Bruce Goldberg, director, intermodal alliances. "FlightLink provides a reliable way to get to DIA without the hassle and expense of driving and parking."
Travelers may purchase tickets and board the bus in Colorado Springs at the Doubletree Inn located at 1775 E. Cheyenne Mountain Boulevard, the Radisson North located at 8119 North Academy Boulevard or the TNM&O terminal located at 120 S. Weber Street.
FlightLink will also serve the Hampton Inn Southeast in the Denver Tech Center before dropping passengers at the airport.
FlightLink will offer an introductory fare of $1 one way March 24-28. Beginning March 29, the regular fare from Colorado Springs is $14 one way and $24 round trip. From Denver Tech Center, regular fares are $8 one way and $14 round trip. FlightLink will also offer a family fare special. The first adult pays full fare, the second adult pays half fare, and children ages 2 to 15 accompanying adults travel free. Airline employees will also receive a 50-percent discount with a valid ID.
Greyhound has served DIA since June 1998 with its regularly scheduled bus service to Vail, Silverthorne, Eagle, Glenwood Springs and Grand Junction. The FlightLink name first appeared in 1997 when Greyhound provided service to AirTran Airlines customers from Chattanooga and Macon to Atlanta Hartsfield Airport. The FlightLink brand name will be extended to Greyhound's other airport services in 1999.
As part of its regular intercity bus schedules, Greyhound also provides service to airports in Atlanta, Washington Dulles, Phoenix, Miami, Nashville, New Orleans, St. Louis, Syracuse and others.
Greyhound is the only nationwide provider of intercity bus transportation, serving more than 2,600 destinations with 18,000 daily departures. The company also provides package express service, charter service and food service at certain terminals.
