Spring has arrived…with warmer weather, more sunshine, and flowering plants adding color once again to our community. It’s the perfect time to become more familiar with the great public transit system available in Boulder. Boulder has the best public transit system outside of Denver with thirteen city routes, accessing most parts of the community.
Boulder offers so many interesting places…cultural, historical, recreational, dining, shopping…to visit. Leave your car at home…don’t fight the traffic, relax on the bus, and save money. Via’s travel training program can assist you in learning how to use the RTD system to go wherever you would like.
Via’s professional travel instructors will meet with you individually, answer your questions, plan trips to destinations you are interested in going to, and practice riding the bus with you until you feel comfortable and confident to do it independently. All public transit vehicles are accessible with lifts or ramps for individuals using a mobility device, or for those just preferring not to climb up stairs.
If you are interested in going to Denver…the new RTD Flatiron Flyer can take you there utilizing the designated commuter lane on Highway 36. And the new A-Line light rail is available now to take travelers to DIA from Denver’s Union Station. Via’s award-winning travel training program will help you learn all the regional fixed route transportation options so that you may travel independently and confidently throughout RTD’s system.
The best day to learn something new is today….let our travel training program show you how easy and fun it can be to ride the bus. Via’s travel training program is available for people over the age of 60 and for individuals with disabilities who live within the RTD fixed route system throughout the metro-Denver region.
