Sustainable Transportation Overview
We strive to get students out of cars and into a better mode of transportation such as on a bike, bus, carpool, foot, skateboard, or a combination of those. If you have any questions or ideas please don't hesitate to e-mail us. To the right are various modes of transportation that we support; try to find out which mode is best suitable for your lifestyle and needs.

Bus Pass Issues 

Summer Bus Pass Suspension Information
For students that are not enrolled in summer terms, but returning for the Fall semester, their bus passes will be suspended beginning on May 26 through August 1, 2017. To keep the pass working over the summer a student can visit the Buff OneCard office in C4C and purchase an “optional bus pass” for $85 (if purchased from RTD directly it would cost $342). This program is also available for residents of family housing. For those that are enrolled and paying mandatory fees for a summer term/s, no further action needs to be taken and their pass will continue to work. For further information or questions please e-mail

Common Bus Pass Problems

If you need a bus pass and are a fee paying student, visit the Buff OneCard office in C4C. If you lost your card they can replace it for $10.
