The new South Jeffco call-n-ride bus service is scheduled to begin service on January 22. The service, provided by the Regional Transportation District (RTD), will operate from 5:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, and on Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.
The call-n-ride is intended to replace a number of bus routes (60, 63X, 67, 76 & 401) which are being eliminated or will have service reduced due to budget cuts by RTD. The service boundaries are Platte Canyon on the east, Bowles and Southwest Plaza on the north, and C-470 to the west and the south, which also includes trips to Lockheed Martin.
This personalized, curb-to-curb bus service operates with smaller (14 passenger) buses and is designed to take you anywhere you want to go within the service area. One call can connect you to bus routes, Park-n-Rides, light rail stations or to work, school, and shopping.
>> Call 303-994-3069 and request travel at least one hour or up to two weeks in advance. RTD will provide an estimated pick-up time.
>> You can also book your trip online at rtd-denver.com at least two hours prior to departure.
However, you must phone in your reservation the first time you use the service.
Service is available on a first-come, first-served basis. When the bus arrives, you will need to pay your exact cash fare - $2.25 per trip for regular riders and $1.10 for seniors and children aged 6-19.
RTD will mail a brochure to residents within the South Jeffco call-n-ride service area with information on how to use the service as well as two free ride coupons.
