- RTD / CTN
- Broadway & Euclid
RTD serves Boulder and the entire Denver metropolitan area -- including Denver International Airport. Student fees pay for a bus pass each semester, so by showing a valid UCB student ID when boarding any Boulder local RTD bus the ride is free. A ride in the metropolitan area that originates or ends in Boulder also is free with a valid UCB student ID. SkyRide to DIA has a $5 surcharge, return from DIA is free. RTD's SkyRide offers reliable transportation to and from Denver International Airport.
After 8:00 p.m. the RTD provides a program called Night Stop. This program allows riders who don't feel safe walking home from their usual stop, to ask the bus driver to let them off at any safe point along the regular route.
The busses listed below service the University directly. In addition to these, other busses service Boulder -- see the RTD link below.
Community Transit Network (CTN)
Boulder's CTN provides seven routes are available on the brightly-painted Hop, Skip, Jump, Bound, Dash, Bolt and Stampede buses. Theses routes are administered by both the Regional Transportation District (RTD) and Special Transit.
Please check the RTD and GoBoulder websites for details. Generally, the Hop bus runs every 10 minutes between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. between the University, "the Hill," Pearl Street Mall and Crossroads Mall. The bus is free with a valid UCB-Boulder student ID. Regular fare is seventy-five cents.
Through the UCB academic calendar, the Night Hop runs Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights every 15 minutes between Pearl Street Mall, "the Hill," and campus from 10:30 p.m. to 2:30 a.m.
CU NightRide is a student-operated program dedicated to meeting the safety needs of CU students, faculty, and staff by providing night-time transportation to support a safe academic and socially responsible environment both on campus and in the community.
