Where to Go, What to Do - CarFit Program

The CarFit program is designed to help drivers find out how well they currently fit their personal vehicle, to highlight actions they can take to improve their fit, and to promote conversations about driver safety and community mobility. A proper fit in one’s personal vehicle can greatly increase not only the driver’s safety but also the safety of others. The inspection of your vehicle takes 20 minutes or less. You can schedule an appointment so you will be served at a time convenient to you.

Go in the Know - Guaranteed Ride Home

The Guaranteed Ride Home Program is an added benefit provided to employees of companies participating in the annual RTD EcoPass program. This exclusive Way to Go service encourages the use of public transportation and other commute methods such as carpooling, vanpooling, biking, and walking by providing employees with a free taxi ride home if an emergency situation occurs while they are at work on a day they used a transportation option other than driving alone. The Guaranteed Ride Home program saw a 49.5% increase in the number of taxi rides home provided to EcoPass holders from 2013 to 2014.
