Keep Cool and Ride the RTD

Whether you’re seeing the sites or going to a summer festival, using the Regional Transportation District (RTD) is a great way to get to your destination. There are several local routes that serve the city of Boulder such as the Hop, Skip, Jump, Bound, Dash, Stampede and Bolt. You can also get late night transit Thursday-Saturday in conjunction with CU’s fall semester starting in late August.

Check out the City of Boulder’s event calendar to see when riding RTD would be convenient for you.

The Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG) offers a great trip planning tool on Just enter your location and destination to see whether bike, bus or car is the best bet. This online tool helps you find RTD fares for your trips, count calories expended and register for carpools in your area.

When you travel outside Boulder, find out the best Local and Regional RTD routes by using our US 36 Transit Guide. You’ll see a color-coded map by city with RTD routes that serve the US 36 corridor. The six Park-n-Rides along the eastbound US 36 include Table Mesa, US 36 & McCaslin, US 36 & East Flatiron Circle, US 36 & Broomfield, US 36 & Church Ranch and Westminster Center.
