RTD offers other discounts for those outside this age range and for individuals with disabilities. You can only use one RTD discount at a time.

Currently, this means a monthly gross household/family income as follows, based on the number of household members (x): $1,967 (1); $2,658 (2); $3,349 (3); $4,039 (4); $4,730 (5); $5,421 (6).

Members of your household include individuals who are on the same tax return. If you do not file taxes and are not on someone else’s return, the members of your household include your spouse and your children who live with you.

If you need help, you can ask a service agency if you can use their mailing address. If you don’t provide a mailing address, your card will be sent to your county’s main human services office.

Visit our system map for area boundaries.

You will need to upload supporting documents verifying gross income (pay stubs, letters from employers, or benefit award letters, or other documents showing gross income) for each adult in the household.

Upload a clear, close-up, full-color image of yourself on a neutral background to be printed on your LiVE identification card. Do not upload a photo of your driver's license or other existing ID card. *If the uploaded photo is not useable, it will cause a delay in receiving your card.
