So, Lyons peeps, you want a FREE year long RTD pass?

Great news for anyone that lives within the Lyons Planning Area! Thanks to our friends at Boulder County, Cemex, and town of Lyons, you now qualify for a free ECO pass for RTD. These passes normally run about $1800 but if you're in the LPD, they are totally free.

This ECO pass will get you a free ride on any RTD bus or light rail. Period. For one year. Here's the details...
*****************************************************************************As a Lyons resident, you are eligible for a Free RTD Eco Pass. This is a community-wide annual pass starting December 1, 2010 and will entitle you to unlimited usage of RTD services.

Eco Pass holders are entitled to unlimited rides on RTD transit services, including:

  • Any local, express or regional bus.
  • Boulder's Community Transit Network: HOP, SKIP, JUMP, BOUND, DASH, STAMPEDE and BOLT.
  • SkyRide bus service to DIA ($5 to DIA, free return fare).
  • "N" bus to Eldora Mountain Ski Resort.
  • Light Rail.
  • call-n-Ride

Using your Eco Pass is easy. Just show the Eco Pass photo ID card to the bus driver or light rail inspector. Then take a seat, relax and enjoy the ride.

All Eco Pass cardholders are also eligible to use the Guaranteed Ride Home Program from Ride Arrangers free of charge. This peace-of-mind program gives cardholders a free taxi ride home in the event of an emergency, illness or unexpected schedule change that requires you to work late.

Get Your Pass: To qualify for this pass, you must live within the Lyons Planning Area. Bring proof of residency to any of these locations on the dated indicated and sign up for your FREE RTD Bus Pass.

Dates to pick up your pass: November 6th, at the Lyons High School 12-3:30 pm; November 13th, Walt Self Center, 8:00am-1:00pm, November 16th, Lyons Town Hall, 3:00pm-7:00pm.
