RTD Transit Pass Update

RTD Transit Pass Update

The Eco Pass Program is extremely important to Boulder county, the City of Boulder, and other local agencies.

Beginning in March 2017 and running for approximately one year, RTD is convening a Pass Program Working Group to develop recommendations on changes to all of their transit pass programs. According to a Jan. 17, 2017 staff presentation to the RTD Board, the objectives of the group are to:

  • Revisit and refine goals for each pass program
  • Refine pricing and administration of each pass program
  • Recommend pass program policy revisions
  • Recommend criteria for RTD to use in evaluating future proposals for new pass programs

The presentation also outlined the following Guiding Principles for the group:

  • Brand loyalty
  • Convenience
  • Cost-effectiveness
  • Equitable access
  • Increased ridership
  • Meet strategic budget plan targets
  • Revenue certainty
  • Simplifying rider-operator interactions

The working group is comprised of 26 members from diverse backgrounds all across the district. View the member list.

The purpose of this website is to provide the public with clear and transparent information on the activities of the working group. All information provided to the working group will be posted here as it becomes available.
