Flatiron Flyer Ridership Challenge
Transportation is the one of the largest contributors to Greenhouse Gas emissions in the U.S. In the year prior to the pandemic, the Environmental Protection Agency recorded the Front Range residents persistently inhaled unhealthy air for 265 days; which included more than 25 Ozone Warnings.
Air pollution from vehicles is a major cause of this pollution, and a reduction in emissions can have a big impact on quality of life and air. Public Transportation produces significantly lower Greenhouse Gas emissions, improves air quality, decreases pollutants in the atmosphere and helps create healthier communities.
The Flatiron Flyer Rider Challenge invites people from the Denver metro region to take the RTD Flatiron Flyer to work, to school, to run errands and to explore the Boulder-Denver region rather than driving individually.
