Enjoy one leg of your Silverton journey onboard a modern D&SNGRR 53 passenger bus as you travel 52 miles of magnificent mountain terrain on US Highway 550's scenic San Juan Skyway!  This option offers you a different perspective of the majestic mountains. 

Important note:  Due to the high elevation on the passes, there are often travel restrictions on commercial vehicles during Spring and Autumn.  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.
