Greyhound Bus Service is back serving Grand County and Winter Park, Colorado. Greyhound pulled it’s Grand County Service about five years ago because it wasn’t cost effective. Meaning they weren’t making cash. Well, they are back running a route from Denver to Salt Lake City on US Highway 40 that runs through Winter Park, Granby and Steamboat Springs.
