New Bus Service Added from Butte to Great Falls

BUTTE -

The Salt Lake Express announced Tuesday it will start a daily bus service from Butte to Helena and Great Falls this Thursday.

The new bus service will serve eight communities on Intertstate-15 traveling northbound that lost service last summer when Rimrock Stages halted its routes.

Salt Lake Express agreed to a working contract with the Montana Department of Transportation last week.

The bus routes are part of a goal to connect rural areas to urban regions.

Services will start on Thursday at the Butte bus depot.

Buses from Butte to Great Falls will start daily at 6:45 p.m.
