Following months of testing, customer feedback, and a comprehensive assessment, RTD will transition to QRyde on Sunday, May 26, 2024. The new platform was specifically designed to improve customer reservations, scheduling, and dispatch functionality. For more information about the software transition, click here.

Access-a-Ride is RTD’s ADA complementary paratransit service. It is a shared-ride service intended for those who cannot use regular fixed-route bus/light rail service due to a disability.

How do I qualify for Access-a-Ride?
