HOP Bus

The new HOP bus will be orange instead of white and feature updated designs. The new design is part of the HOP route changes that will begin in August 2018, when the HOP will change from a looped route to four distinct routes.

HOP Detour

Due to repaving at the Twenty Ninth Street shopping center, the HOP is running on a detoured route now through September 2019. 

HOP detour map

For both the clockwise and counterclockwise routes, the HOP will not run on Walnut Street or 29th Street. It will travel north/south on 30th Street between Pearl Street and Canyon Boulevard, bypassing the usual Walnut Street/ Twenty Ninth Street shopping center stops and instead stop on Canyon Boulevard in front of the Century Boulder movie theater.
