The Chaffee Shuttle is now
Mountain Valley Transit.

Our new name better represents our mission of providing transportation options for increased independence and improved quality of life for residents and visitors in South Central Colorado.


Our mission is to provide transit options for the area’s residents and visitors—to increase access to key destinations in our communities and reduce their transportation costs, as well as decrease environmental pollutants through shared-ride alternatives.

Donations are appreciated to help us maintain our operations. Mountain Valley Transit is a rural transit nonprofit organization formed in Salida, CO in 1996. We offer fixed routes and on-demand, door-to-door service.
