Get it, Tap it, Love it! RTD’s Smart Card

For students

Starting with the 2013 spring semester RTD’s new CollegePass smart card will replace the sticker on your University ID. The RTD campaign is called get it, tap it, love it because you’ll tap your card at a card reader when boarding a bus or before boarding light rail.

Registered students can pick up their smart card in the Tivoli Multicultural Lounge on Jan. 7-19 and Jan. 22, 2013. The distribution hours are:

Monday through Thursday: 8 a.m.-7 p.m.

Friday: 8 a.m.-5 p.m.

Saturday: 9 a.m.-3 p.m.

Students must present their University ID and their spring 2013 class schedule to receive their smart card.

If you can’t come to campus during the distribution, you’ll be able to pick up your smart card at the Commuter Resource Center, TIV 269. Plus, there will be a grace period until Feb. 12, 2013 during which you can still use your current fall sticker. However, RTD encourages students to get their smart card during the January distribution.


For faculty and staff

The EcoPass is a $25/month RTD pass for faculty and staff. It is arranged through payroll deduction. Sign up by visiting the Parking & Transportation Services Office (777 Lawrence Way, in the 7th Street Garage).
