FlexRide serves the important function of filling in transportation service gaps. Sometimes called the first-and-last-mile service, FlexRide takes people to and from the Regional Transportation District’s (RTD’s) fixed bus and rail routes. FlexRide can also take people from place to place where no other bus service exists.
Driving for FlexRide means interacting with a wide variety of people. All vehicles are accessible and have bike racks. Consider driving for FlexRide if you enjoy being social without the added responsibility of taking people with mobility limitations door-through-door.

One of the ways Via helps pay for our nonprofit mission services like Via Paratransit, is by providing transportation services by contract to the RTD and local municipalities. FlexRide is one of Via’s contracts with RTD. We operate and maintain RTD’s FlexRide vehicles for some of their routes.
This service is open to the public, not just people with disabilities.
