During the months of July and August, customers can ride RTD with zero fare. This program is made possible by Colorado Senate Bill 22-180 and in partnership with the Colorado Energy Office.
Riding transit promotes cleaner air. Approximately 85% of the greenhouse gas emissions that come from transportation are due to day-to-day commutes. By leaving the car at home, a person can save up to 20 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions every day. Some of the additional benefits of using transit include cost savings, gas savings, traffic reduction, time savings and stress reduction making a daily commute better for all.
There are many ways to take advantage of Zero Fare for Better Air this summer. Transit can, of course, be used for daily work commute, but RTD also offers services that make connections to entertainment and sports venues, schools, and popular shopping and restaurants districts.
