Final Weigh-In on the RTD Youth Pass & RTD Low-Income Pass

February 27 @ 1:00 pm

Together Colorado, the Donnell Kay Foundation, Mile High Connects, and Stand for Children, have been working with numerous other partners at the RTD Pass Working Group to make transportation options for our students accessible and affordable for all. A proposal is in the works to create a Youth Pass that would greatly benefit students in the Denver Metro area.

If you can’t attend, you can still help!

The RTD Pass Working Group is asking community organizations, parents, students, and teachers to speak about why it’s important to have a Youth Pass.

Join on Feb. 27, 2018, at 1 PM at One Civic Center Plaza, 1560 Broadway, Denver, CO 80202 in the 19th floor conference room!

The RTD pass working group is almost a year into its work and is examining a variety of different transit pass components to recommend to the RTD Board, including:

1. A youth pass which would be free to youth 12 and under, and would offer day/monthly/yearly passes at a 70% discount for youth 13 through graduating from high school.
2. A 50% discount for individual/families that are 185% of the federal poverty level,
3. A 50% discount for seniors and disabled, and
4. Discounts for bulk purchases.

Our understanding is that one package with some variety of components will be recommended to the RTD Board at the February 27, 2018 meeting.

Those who are unable to attend but want to share their perspective with the RTD task force are encouraged to write letters.
