Free Transportation

The Galloping Goose is a free transportation system with the town of Telluride. The Goose makes a town loop every 20 minutes, and during ski season there are 2 Gooses making the loop which lowers the waiting time down to 10 minutes. The name comes from the seven gasoline engine rail buses that traveled over the railroads in the San Juan Mountains from the 1930's to the 1950's. Galloping Goose #4 is normally on display in next to the courthouse, but it is currently in Ridgway for restoration. The Galloping Goose Historical Society of Dolores, Inc, granted our town permission to use the name. There is also a ski run and a hiking trail sharing the name.
