Connecting Denver, Westminster, Broomfield, Boulder and everywhere in between
The Flatiron Flyer is a new rapid transit service scheduled to launch in early 2016 that will provide reliable, predictable, and comfortable bus service between Denver and Boulder. The Flatiron Flyer is an efficient, quick and environmentally friendly commute option.
The Flatiron Flyer will travel between downtown Denver and Boulder, with varying levels of service at six Park-n-Rides along US 36.
You will experience more frequent bus service, the convenience and comfort of new stations, and new branded buses. These benefits, combined with the highway improvements of express lanes and the ability for RTD buses to drive on the shoulder will improve your commute with reliable, frequent, predictable service.
See the Proposed US 36 Bus Rapid Transit Service Plan. Stay tuned for more information on bus routes, times, and schedules.
The Flatiron Flyer is the official name of RTD’s new Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) service being added through the FasTracks program. The Flatiron Flyer service, combined with the US 36 highway and parking improvements, is the result of years of work and collaboration between RTD and CDOT.
There are 6 major components necessary to create bus rapid transit along US 36:
When combined, all of these individual improvements work together to create a bus rapid transit system by ensuring predictable, quick and safe transit between Denver and Boulder.
The Flatiron Flyer fleet is comprised of 59 new branded buses:
You might not realize it, but many of the changes you’ve enjoyed along US 36 since 2010 have been a part of this project.
These changes, combined with a new service plan (to be announced in 2015) will optimize run times, destinations and route patterns for many of the regional buses currently traveling between Denver and Boulder.
