Bus/Train combination options

Save time! Ride a bus!

Whether you need more time to enjoy Durango’s great activities or to wind down and relax, we know your time is valuable. We’ve expanded our bus service and schedule to give you that extra time!
Enjoy part of your Silverton journey onboard a modern D&SNGRR bus as you travel along US Highway 550. Trips to and from Silverton cover 52 miles of the San Juan Scenic Byway. This option offers you a different perspective of the majestic mountains.

Important to note: Due to the high elevation on the passes, there may be travel restrictions on commercial vehicles during the Spring and Autumn months. If there is a weather advisory, we reserve the right to cancel our busses. Alternate options will include riding the train round trip on the same date or riding the bus on another date.

Passengers enjoy the view from spacious bus windows:
