Bike more, drive less to Bells

After reading about the Roaring Fork Transportation Authority driver shortage, I make the following suggestion again: Dedicate two weekdays every week during summer as bike-only for Maroon Creek Road.

It would limit the need for bus drivers. Would fit in well with the city of Aspen’s alleged “environmentalism” horn-blowing, and tourists on e-bikes would have a unique experience.

This is a legitimate solution to the ongoing issue of employee shortages that increase year over year in Aspen and the Roaring Fork Valley.
