The Regional Transportation District (RTD) in Denver is seeking proposals for consultant support for a systemwide fare study and equity analysis.

The agency is working to develop an equitable fare structure and pass program recommendations by late 2022. RTD plans to implement any fare changes in 2023.

The agency continues to follow a fare structure that was implemented in 2016, with fare levels in three categories: local, regional and airport. RTD's board recently approved revisions to the agency’s fare structure and pass programs that were implemented in 2019. 

The fare study and equity analysis will follow a process consistent with guidance from the Federal Transit Administration and will include comprehensive public involvement, including extensive multicultural outreach, RTD officials said in a news release.

The outreach will accompany a technical analysis of potential fare policy changes. The process is expected to take about 18 months to complete.
