Establishing new collaboration efforts to get riders to their first and last mile destinations
RTD actively pursues collaboration efforts that integrate new mobility services with traditional public transportation. As such, we are proud to announce an exciting new collaboration with Uber. Starting in January 2019, select users in the Denver area will be able to choose public transportation as an option directly through the Uber app!
Using the App
The Uber app can be downloaded from the App store or Google Play. After downloading and setting up login credentials, follow these steps to use the app while in the Denver metro area:
- Choose your destination and starting point.
- Select "Transit" among the product options.
- Review the route list and then select a route. Route details will then be displayed.
- Choose how you want to view trip details via steps and the map.
The transit function will be added to the Uber app in a phased approach to users in the Denver area. In addition, through an extended collaboration with app developer Masabi, the next phase of the Uber app will allow riders to purchase and activate tickets directly in the Uber app. Stay tuned for more details!
