As of recent, GO Alpine has introduced a new service option where the public will have the opportunity to sign up for a monthly taxi membership. Memberships are $200 a month and cover pickups and drop offs within Steamboat Springs city limits.
Members will receive an ID card with their picture in order for drivers to verify the rider’s identity as the memberships are nontransferable. Additional passengers will be charged the PUC approved taxi rate if they do not have a membership themselves. Unlimited taxi service will be limited to the hours between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm. Multi stop taxi runs can be requested however, the possibility of stops is not guaranteed and dependent on availability. Members will also have the option to pause their memberships for up to three months.
With the lack of ride share options in Steamboat, this could be a great way for riders to save. “We have several frequent riders that rely on us daily to get to work on time or back home especially during the cold winter months when waiting on the SST is virtually unbearable.” Said Sutton Schuler, Director of Sales and Business Development, “This will also allow peace of mind for riders as they will be in a private cab that has been sanitized after each ride”.
