IMPACT FOR 

In 2023, customers who use the SkyRide or A Line to travel to and/or from Denver International Airport pay an Airport fare for a Day Pass or Monthly Pass (which covers Local, Regional and Airport travel).

AIRPORT FARE CUSTOMERS

WHAT IS THE NEW FARE STRUCTURE?

Using customer and community feedback, RTD has created a new fare structure.

The new structure lowers fares for all customers and simplifies the fare structure by combining Local and Regional fares while maintaining an Airport fare. 

 

Highlights of the New Fare Structure

Under the new fare structure,

  • Airport customers pay an Airport fare ($10) for SkyRide and A Line trips that begin or end at Denver International Airport

  • Any other routes that travel to or from the airport pay the Standard fare ($2.75 for a 3-Hour Pass or $5.50 for a Day Pass.) The Standard fare also includes travel to all Local and Regional routes

  • One Monthly Pass price ($88) allows customers to travel anywhere, including to and from
    the airport

FARE CHANGES FOR AIRPORT CUSTOMERS

Airport customers using the SkyRide or A Line pay:

  • $0.50 less for a Day Pass

  • $112 less for a Monthly Pass

 

That means savings of approximately:

  • 5% on a Day Pass

  • 56% on a Monthly Pass

Frequent Airport customers or employees benefit from the Monthly Pass/fare cap of $88, equivalent to approximately 9 Day Passes (down from 19 in the current structure).

You may also qualify for new discounts, passes or programs under the new fare structure.
