Boulder County encourages the use of the Transit app, which allows you to quickly compare transit options for your trip. Transit pulls information from every available form of transportation, including buses, trains, Ubers, Lyfts, and everything in between. Get precise real-time predictions for public transit, the smartest and fastest trip plans, and a step-by-step navigator when you’re going to unfamiliar destinations.
Be sure to check out all of the free transportation options on this page before booking your trip (RTD bus passes, Uber/Lyft vouchers, free door-to-door services, and more).
