Try the FlexRide in the Northwest Metro Region

FlexRide vehicle with driverWhat is the FlexRide?

RTD’s FlexRide is one of the most versatile transit services available to the northwest metro area. It’s a call-ahead, on-demand neighborhood transit service ideal for connecting to other RTD services at stations and Park-n-Rides or to shopping malls, schools, businesses, recreational centers, libraries and more.

Anyone can order or schedule a FlexRide trip by calling, making reservations online or using the app. This service complements fixed bus routes to help riders complete trips between RTD stations and their final destinations, and can even be used to travel between destinations within the service area.

Northwest Metro Region Service Areas

There are five FlexRide Service areas within the northwest metro region: Broomfield, Interlocken/Westmoor, Superior, Louisville and Longmont.

How do you use FlexRide?

You can either pre-schedule a ride ahead of time, schedule a recurring reservation or request a ride up to 10 minute before your trip. The cost is that of a local 3-hour pass: $3.00 (regular) or $1.50 (discount) and is free for those transferring from another RTD service.

To make a onetime reservation, book online at rtd-denver.com/flexride or call the FlexRide in your service area.

In some areas, there is established regularly scheduled service to schools, major activity centers and Park-n-Rides where no reservation is required. You can just wait at the FlexRide stop and get picked up.

FlexRide also offers a subscription service to schedule recurring trips with the same time and location. Once you’ve created the subscription online, RTD will pick up and drop off on your schedule for 180 days until you renew or cancel your subscription.
