Customers began using the new RTD MyRide system in September 2022 as new validators were being installed across all RTD buses and rail platforms.

Create a new RTD MyRide account and use the MyRide Transition Form to transfer the balance of your old MyRide card to your new RTD MyRide account.

No need to install a new app, simply update to get the RTD MyRide app and all the new features!

No, you can also manage your MyRide account online in the new RTD MyRide web portal.

The old MyRide discount is no longer available when using the MyRide mobile barcode or card, but remains available when you purchase mobile or physical 10-Ride Ticket Books. And with fare capping, you'll always get the best price on RTD!

Fare capping ensures you never pay more than you should on RTD. When you use your MyRide mobile barcode or new MyRide card, 3-Hour Passes will automatically convert to Day and Monthly Passes. Taking a trip to a higher fare zone later in the day? You'll only pay the difference! Fare capping also applies to individual tokens, so an account holder using their MyRide barcode will accumulate trips separately than those using cards connected to the same account. This way, everyone benefits!

The change to RTD MyRide is part of RTD’s Fare Modernization Project which began in 2016. The goal was to replace RTD’s card-based system with a cloud-based system to offer a better customer experience and improve data processing and security. The new system is a technological leap forward for customers and the agency, and provides an upgrade path for integrating additional payment options in the future.

To experience all the benefits of RTD MyRide, download the RTD MyRide app and create an account. Then make a deposit to scan and ride using your MyRide balance!
