COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — Commuter bus service between Colorado Springs and Denver will continue for at least the rest of the year.

FrontRange Express, or FREX, recently sold nine surplus buses for $1.4 million to raise money to keep service running.

The Colorado Department of Transportation agreed to put its portion of proceeds toward operating FREX through 2010, and the Colorado Springs City Council on Tuesday agreed to do the same.

Transit officials are still seeking a source of sustainable funding to run FREX beyond that.
