RTD received feedback from customers that fares are expensive and difficult to understand. In response, RTD implemented a Systemwide Fare Study and Equity Analysis to reexamine the RTD fare system holistically, taking into consideration equity, affordability, and simplicity.
RTD is taking a customer-centric approach to this study, with opportunities for customers as well as stakeholders and the community members that we serve to help shape the direction of this study. RTD will explore and evaluate potential changes to the fare structure and pass programs throughout 2022, with consideration of study recommendations by the RTD Board of Directors planned for early 2023.
The goals of the study address three foundational aspects of the RTD fare system:
LEARN MORE ABOUT THE FARE ALTERNATIVES
As part of the third phase of the study, RTD developed two distinct fare structure alternatives. These alternatives were developed based on customer and community feedback, financial and operational feasibility and impacts on minority as well as financially burdened customers. Explore the two alternatives and learn more about how the alternatives will impact you as a Local, Regional, Airport or discount program customer at farealternatives.rtd-denver.com. You can also see the additional policies and programs RTD is considering to achieve the study’s goals of equity, affordability and simplicity.
