Taking Transit

EcoPass takes the work out of getting to work.

Our employees are always looking for more ways to show our city some love. With the RTD EcoPass, our employees not only save a ton on stress-free transit ride, they also help reduce traffic congestion, allowing our city to breathe a little easier. It's proof positive that with the EcoPass, you'll spend less and get more.

Our employees enjoy a generously discounted EcoPass. Ask your recruiter for our monthly rate.

Getting Started


Get Your EcoPass

Who can get a discounted bus/light rail pass?

We subsidize the EcoPass for our employees in limited or unlimited positions. The cost of the EcoPass comes out of our employees' paychecks.

How does a city employee get an EcoPass?

The EcoPass is a photo ID that employees will scan on RTD buses, light rail, and train. To get the photo ID, our employees turn in the completed EcoPass Enrollment form to our Benefits team, then takes the authorized form to RTD.

When can employees sign up?

Employees can sign up at any time (and cancel at any time too).

How to ride

While You're At Work

Taking transit, riding your bike, or taking a mode other than a single occupancy vehicle won't leave you stranded at work. You may be able to rent a city vehicle to get to that meeting across town, walk to local restaurants or coffee shops during your breaks, or use MS Teams to connect with a co-worker in another building. Chat with co-workers who use transit and other means and see what else could work for you too.
