Why Take Transit?
Public transit is the most efficient way to connect commuters to their final destination. Traveling by bus or rail is not only budget friendly, but also benefits the environment and improves air quality! According to a study done by the City of Copenhagen, commuters who use public transit get more daily physical activity than those who commute by car because of walking to and from transit stations.
The Regional Transportation District (RTD) provides bus and commuter rail service throughout the northwest metro area.
Get started with transit in three easy steps:
- Plan Your Trip. Plan your trip while at home or on the go! Use RTD’s Trip Planner app or download Transit App to find the route that works best for you! These apps will also provide real-time updates so you can know ahead of time if there are any delays.
- Pay Your Fare. Leave the change at home and pay using a MyRide card, RTD’s pre-loaded fare smart card. Simply load money onto the card and it will automatically deduct your fare when your board the bus, light rail or commuter rail. Learn more about your fare options and MyRide by visiting RTD’s website.
- Ride. Now that you figured out your trip details and fare, enjoy a stress-free commute! All RTD buses are wheelchair accessible and equipped with bike racks.
