RTD has announced new fares and programs that should make it simpler and cheaper for riders. Most of the changes will take effect in January 2024. However, kids 19 and under will be able to ride for FREE starting in September. (A big cheer for helping students get to school and their parents not having to worry about the fare.) Remember: Everyone can ride RTD this July and August for FREE.
Here are the new prices:
A new Standard fare ($2.75 for a 3-hour pass; $5.50 for a day pass; $88 for a monthly pass) for full-fare customers to all destinations except Denver International Airport. Airport fare, for SkyRide and A Line trips that begin or end at the airport is $10.
A single Discount fare ($1.35 for a 3-hour pass; $2.70 for a day pass; $27 for a monthly pass) that provides access to any RTD destination, including the airport, for seniors 65 and older, individuals with disabilities, Medicare recipients and individuals enrolled in LiVE, RTD’s income-based fare discount program.
Zero Fare for Youth, a 12-month pilot program allowing youth ages 19 and under to use RTD services at no cost — through August 31, 2024.
An expansion of the LiVE program that will increase the number of customers eligible to enroll, based on higher income limits and removal of in-district address requirements. In addition, income-eligible customers using para-transit services can enroll in and receive LiVE discounts on Access-a-Ride fares ($2.25 standard fare; $9.50 airport fare) for the first time.
