IMPACT FOR 

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

REGIONAL 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,

  • Regional 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

FARE CHANGES FOR REGIONAL CUSTOMERS

  • $112 less for a Monthly Pass

That means savings of approximately:

  • 47% on 3-Hour and Day Passes

  • 56% 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.
