Garfield County contributes $650,000 for Hogback service

CARBONDALE – Garfield County will renew its contribution of $650,000 for the Grand Hogback bus service the Roaring Fork Transportation Authority operates between Rifle and Glenwood Springs, the head of the bus agency said Thursday in Carbondale.

Garfield County is the only governmental entity in the valley that doesn’t belong to RFTA and support it through sales tax revenues. The members are Pitkin and Eagle counties as well as Aspen, Snowmass Village, Basalt, Carbondale, Glenwood Springs and New Castle.

Nevertheless, Garfield County contributes financially through an intergovernmental agreement with RFTA. It contributed $614,000 for Grand Hogback service in 2010. That increased to $650,000 the following year and has remained at that level the past two years.
