bus

Enjoy one leg of your Silverton journey onboard a modern D&SNGRR bus as you travel along 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 are often 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.
