“Mobile ticketing application” refers to RTD’s Mobile Tickets application, on an iOS or Android device. “Third-party application” refers to RTD-authorized third-party mobility app, on an iOS or Android device. “Mobile ticket” refers to a type of ticket or pass valid for use on RTD bus and rail service, which is purchased through a mobile ticketing application.
The security of your mobile phone or ticket is your responsibility. We recommend that you create a customer account for your protection. In the event that your mobile phone is lost or stolen, you will be able to migrate unused, unexpired tickets to your new device when logging into your customer account on the new device. In the event that the ticket or your mobile phone is lost or stolen, RTD will not provide a duplicate or replacement ticket for used, expired, or stolen tickets, or tickets that were used without your permission.
Your mobile ticket must be activated prior to boarding an RTD vehicle and must be displayed clearly on the mobile phone screen to the operator every time you board an RTD bus, or when requested by a fare inspector or police officer. The mobile ticket must be retained during your entire trip on RTD vehicles. Failure to show an active, valid ticket is considered fare evasion and is subject to enforcement actions according to RTD policy and Colorado State laws.
If the mobile ticket has been damaged or is not readable in any way, it becomes invalid, and a new one must be purchased. If you delete the RTD Mobile Tickets application, you will also delete your mobile tickets. If you reinstall the RTD Mobile Tickets application on the same device it was deleted from (and you log into your account), your tickets will be downloaded to the device. You cannot print mobile tickets or transfer tickets to other individuals. However, you may purchase and activate multiple tickets on the same mobile device for a group riding together. You will have to display an active, valid ticket for each member of your group to the operator every time you board an RTD bus, or when requested by a fare inspector or police officer.
Your RTD mobile ticket will be sold to you via RTD’s mobile ticketing partner, Masabi. The mobile ticket itself creates a contract between you and RTD for the provision of the transport services that the mobile ticket allows you to use. It is RTD that provides these services to you under the mobile ticket, and in no event will Masabi, or any third-party mobile app ticket seller, be responsible for, or have any liability to you, in relation to these services or their availability or performance (including your use or access to any RTD vehicle, the RTD network, your use of any services provided under your mobile ticket, or for your use of the mobile retail application).
Third-Party App Channel Sales
Currently, the only RTD-authorized third-party mobility apps that fulfill RTD mobile tickets are the Uber app, the Lyft app, and the Transit app (Third-party applications). The RTD Mobile Tickets application and the Third-party applications are wholly different and separate apps, governed by separate Privacy Policies and Terms and Conditions of Use, which you can review on the respective apps. Login credentials and accounts are not shared between the RTD Mobile Tickets application and the Third-party applications. Your RTD Mobile Tickets application account is different from your Third-party application account. Your ticket wallet in the RTD Mobile Tickets application only stores mobile tickets purchased from the RTD Mobile Tickets application. Your ticket wallet in the Third-party application only stores mobile tickets purchased from the Third-party application. Mobile tickets purchased in the Third-party application will only be available in the Third-party application. Mobile tickets purchased in the RTD Mobile Tickets application will only be available in the RTD Mobile Tickets application and are not transferable to the Third-party application. RTD Mobile tickets can only be applied towards RTD transit services and cannot be applied towards mobility services offered in the Third-party applications. Other mobility services, such as ride-hailing, scooters and bike sharing services are not available in the RTD Mobile Tickets application. RTD mobile ticket sales purchased in the Third-party application will be sold to you by RTD and mobile ticketing partner, Masabi.
