IMPACT FOR 

In 2023, customers who travel in 1 or 2 rail zones or who ride one of RTD’s Local bus routes pay a Local fare for a 3-Hour Pass, Day Pass or Monthly Pass (which covers only Local travel).

LOCAL 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, 

  • Local customers travel on all Local and Regional routes with the Standard fare ($2.75 for a 3-Hour Pass or $5.50 for a Day Pass)

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

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

Recommended Standard Fare Table. Standard Local and Regional Fare 3-Hour Pass $2.75, Day Pass $5.50, Monthly Pass $88. Airport Fare A-Line and Skyride 3-Hour Pass $10, Day Pass $10, Monthly Pass $88

FARE CHANGES FOR LOCAL CUSTOMERS

Local customers pay:

  • $0.25 less per 3-Hour Pass

  • $0.50 less for a Day Pass

  • $26 less for a Monthly Pass

 

That means savings of approximately:

  • 9% on 3-Hour and Day Passes

  • 23% on a Monthly Pass, which covers travel anywhere in the system, including the airport

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