COMMON QUESTIONS ABOUT RIDING RTD
Why is my boarding stop not listed on the schedule?
Schedules list only major stops on a route. There may be many other stops along the way. If your stop is between locations listed on the schedule, you'll need to estimate the arrival time of the bus or call 1.800.HOW.TO.RIDE (469.8674) for specific times. Plan to arrive at least five minutes early
How do I take my bike on the bus?
RTD passengers have a convenient way to get around town and help the environment at the same time. You can load your bike on easy-to-use bike racks on RTD Metro and Intercity buses, and in the cargo area under Interregional buses. This form of multi-modal transportation makes it easier for you to get to your bus stop and your final destination. For more about RTD's bus bike racks, click here.
