Big Sky Shuttle, Inc. Launches New “SAVE THE CANYON…RIDE THE COACH” Campaign

As part of Big Sky Shuttles’ SAVE THE CANYON…RIDE THE COACH campaign, Tracie Pabst, owner of BSS, will donate $1 from every luxury airport shuttle seat booked during the 2019 winter season to the Gallatin River Task Force.

Tracie introduced private employee transportation to Big Sky 13 years ago by providing safe transportation to 170,000 Yellowstone Club employees for five years. She founded Big Sky Shuttle in 2006 with the goal to “provide transportation solutions for the future growth of Big Sky, future employment resources, and the safety and preservation of the Gallatin Canyon”. The business offers daily scheduled airport shuttles as well as private car and charter service for group events and weddings.

When Tracie contemplated how she could support the Big Sky community, she created the SAVE THE CANYON…RIDE THE COACH campaign for Big Sky Shuttle. Her goal is to encourage guests to ride Big Sky Shuttles’ luxury coaches instead of booking private car service, thus reducing traffic and harm to the Gallatin Canyon. That idea germinated into a challenge for Big Sky businesses to join a community campaign entitled BUCK A SALE for Big Sky.

Tracie shared her excitement for the campaign stating, “At first, I worried about whether or not I could afford to donate a buck a sale. Then I realized, who can’t afford a buck?” She expects to raise thousands of “bucks” for the Gallatin River Task Force each season while building goodwill with customers.

The Big Sky Shuttle ride is impressive! The luxury coaches seat 32 guests with luggage, 37 without luggage, and feature quilted leather seats, wood floors, and USB ports at each seat. In their 13th year of operation and proud of their perfect record of safety, BSS offers a rock star ride that keeps cars off the road, which is environmentally-friendly.

The Bozeman Airport Shuttle is a luxury, 32+-seat luxury coach offering rock star service from the Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport to Big Sky Resort, and beyond! Customers can match Big Sky Shuttle’s donation by giving through the Gallatin River Task Force’s website.

Tracie hopes that other businesses in Big Sky will take the challenge and donate a BUCK A SALE for Big Sky to support one or more of their favorite local nonprofits, which she believes are the heart of the community. In her opinion, the business community represents an untapped resource that could literally “change the face of Big Sky” through philanthropy.
