A new bus service run by a Colorado nonprofit will start offering rides to people in the western part of the state Tuesday. 

Greyhound had a route that ran from Durango to Grand Junction, but the company ended the line about three years ago.     

The Southern Ute Community Action Programs decided to resurrect the line with support of the state.  

The Colorado Department of Transportation is holding an open house in Grand Junction on Wednesday. 

CDOT said the purpose of the meeting is to get feedback on how to improve local and regional transit. The  information from the meeting will be included in the department’s statewide transit plan, according to CDOT. 

One of agency’s newer programs, set to launch early next year, is a bus service to connect the Front Range to the Western Slope.
