RTD's fare study - Phase 1 findings
The purpose of the first phase of the study was to evaluate the current RTD fare policies, including how fares are calculated based on distance, zones, and class of service such as Regional, Express, and Local/Limited. We also looked at cash, tickets, passes, and other fare media. Learn more about RTD's fare study
RTD and the CH2M Hill team have completed the first phase of the RTD fare study and the presentation below identifies strengths and weaknesses of the current fare structure and opportunities for simplification.
RTD and the CH2M Hill team have identified opportunities for simplification of the current fare structure and have developed fare structure alternatives. We're holding a series of public meetings between December 3, 2014 and December 11, 2014 throughout the metro area to present these fare structure alternatives and hear your feedback.
The fare structure alternatives will also be presented online to provide additional opportunities for public feedback by early December.
