Reservations can be made up to 30 days in advance and in as little as ten minutes prior to pick-up time, based on availability. Advanced reservations are recommended as space is available on a first-come, first-served basis. For timed meets at RTD stations or Park-n-Rides, no reservations are needed – see more below under Flex Routes.

Tips for Booking Your Trip
- Be on time. Vehicles may arrive between five minutes before or ten minutes after your scheduled pick-up time. Your driver will only wait one minute after scheduled departure time for you to board.
- Schedule drop-off times. When you have an appointment that requires you to arrive by a certain time, schedule your trip with a drop-off time rather than a pick-up time, for example, "I need to be dropped off by 3 p.m."
- Plan ahead. If your ride is scheduled during heavy-traffic times or on days with bad weather in the forecast, schedule extra time into your trip. Call us at 303.299.6000 if you need to reschedule your trip.
- Cancel early. If you must cancel, please call 303.299.6000 and cancel your trip at least two hours in advance of the scheduled pickup time. Please provide your name, phone number, and the date and time of the trip you wish to cancel.
- Go mobile. On your mobile phone, click the “Book your trip online” button at the top of this page. At the prompt, select “Add to Home Screen.” If not prompted right away, click the share icon to find the “Add to Home Screen” option. This will create a shortcut to the FlexRide reservation app for future use.
