The Regional Transportation District (RTD) is the public transportation service provider for the Denver Metro region. RTD services are funded through a combination of federal transportation dollars, fares and a .6 percent sales tax or 6 cents for every $10 dollar purchase. Because one size does not fit all, RTD attempts to provide appropriate service for different situations and clientele. Service types include local bus service, express bus service, regional bus service, light rail, call-n-Ride service, and paratransit through its access-a-Ride program.
In addition, RTD also provides SkyRide service in which direct transit service to Denver International Airport is provided at designated Park-n-Ride lots throughout the region. Light rail service is also provided along the Santa Fe corridor and connects Littleton to Downtown Denver. A Central Platte Valley light rail spur was recently opened to the public and the southeast I-25 light rail will provide rapid transit service to the Denver Technology Center. The southeast I-25 alignment is being constructed as part of the larger T-REX transportation project and is expected to be on-line in 2006. Transportation to special events such as Broncos and Rockies games is provided and can be accessed at specific Park-n-Ride lots for a cash-only fare. Eco Passes, which can be purchased by employers for their employees, provide unlimited access to all transit services with the exception of the Broncos and Rockies Rides.

Walking as a form of transportation can have beneficial consequences for communities. Less driving helps relieve congestion and well- designed landscape and residential density will improve air quality more than will additional roadways. Regulatory and design strategies, including traffic-calming measures, sidewalks, bike paths, underpasses or tunnels help make communities safer for pedestrians and bicyclists.
