The Regional Transportation District (RTD) of Denver has rebranded its Call-n-Ride microtransit service to FlexRide. 

FlexRide allows commuters first- and last-mile connections to rail stations. The connections can be booked using a new mobile app, reducing the call-ahead booking time from an hour to 10 minutes before departure, RTD officials said in a press release.

Riders can also use a subscription option to schedule pick-ups from the same day, time and location.

Riders will have access to 21 FlexRide service areas for the cost of a local fare, or as an extension of a trip on rail or bus.

New white buses were added to the fleet in January 2019 to accompany the green buses from the Call-n-Ride service, bringing the number of shuttles to 32. The green buses will also be rebranded under the FlexRide name, and replaced over the next few years, according to the RTD website.
