RTD College Passes Should Work During Summer
I attend classes every summer, but the RTD pass we have is not active during this time. This leaves students to pay an extra $300-$400 just for transportation during May, June, July and August if you regularly use the RTD to get to and from school, work, or home.
There should be an option to add the transportation fee during summer, and keep the RTD cards active, or even just keep them active for everyone year round.
People that live in colorado will still make use of them, especially during summer when they will have more time to work between classes.
Yes, unfortunately, the fee collected for the academic year only provides us service to RTD for the academic year. After talking with several students this summer alone, USG will be pursing this matter.
If students who take summer classes still need the RTD service, it would most likely require an extra fee for students taking summer classes. However if the full year service is pursued, we would look into an increase in the overall fee for transportation.
Keep checking back for more updates on the matter, and thanks for reaching out!
