Go by Bus
Boulder Valley School District Transportation offers bus service to thousands of students daily.
RTD (Regional Transportation District) can get you just about anywhere you want to go within the Boulder Valley School District and beyond.
RTD FREE for Students for the 23/24 School Year!
For the month of August, RTD is free for ALL users through their Zero Fare for Better Air program!
From September 1, 2023 through August 31, 2024, Youth 19 and under can just hop on board!
RTD is excited to welcome a future generation of transit users to experience the benefits of public transit at no cost.
Zero Fare for Youth is a one-year pilot program that aims to enhance the lives of RTD customers and communities by reducing transportation costs for families.
By inviting youth ages 19 and under to ride the bus and train at no cost, we also remove barriers to education and employment, while creating access to destinations across the metro Denver region. If you’re new to our system, check out our How to Ride video.
*What Do I Need to Show When I Ride?
To ride at no cost as part of this program, you must be prepared to show one of the following to the bus operator or fare inspector: current school ID, valid government-issued ID, alien registration/permanent resident card, Military ID/dependent card with DOB, RTD-issued youth special discount card.
