Salt Lake Express to provide transit between Great Falls and Butte
Service replaces route dropped by Rimrock

HELENA -- The Montana Department of Transportation is pleased to
announce Salt Lake Express will provide fixed schedule bus service on
the route between Great Falls and Butte, starting Feb. 20.  This new
service will connect with the Salt Lake Express bus between Salt Lake
on I-15 and the East and Westbound Jefferson Lines on I-90 at the
Butte Greyhound terminal.  Stops on the route will include Great
Falls-Ulm Junction-Cascade-Craig Junction-Wolf
Creek-Helena-Boulder-Basin and Butte.

“This is a great additional connection for us,” said Tom Price, owner
of Salt Lake Express “It allows the people living in this corridor to
have access to all the destinations we currently serve as well as
into the National Bus Network which includes the entire continental
U.S.  This gives them more options for transportation.	We are
excited to partner with MDT on this project!” 

Salt Lake Express currently provides intercity bus transportation in
Montana between Butte and Salt Lake City and has been providing
transit in the states since 1997.  

“The route between Great Falls and Butte is an important connection
for Montanans who rely on public transit out of necessity and out of
choice,” said David Jacobs, MDT Transit Section Supervisor.  “This
service, offered daily, seven-days-a-week, is another transit link
that is getting Montanans where they need to go.”

Reliable transportation is a key to quality of life across Montana. 
MDT provides funding to Montana transit services to supplement
general operations, capital and equipment.
