RTD Implements Fees At Park-N-Ride Locations

Program Begins Monday At 4 Locations

The Regional Transportation District will begin charging for parking at its park-n-ride locations Monday, Feb. 2.

The first phase of the new parking management program includes Wagon Road, Thornton, Airport Boulevard & 40th Avenue and Stapleton.

Twelve locations will be added in March, six in April and 12 more in May to complete the program.

Signs were installed in the affected parking lots last fall explaining the program and giving users phone numbers to call for questions.

Under the parking fee structure, residents in RTD's district may park free for the first 24 hours. Each day after that will cost $2 per day in high demand lots and $1 per day in low demand lots.

RTD said a high demand lot is one that has 90 percent or greater utilization. A low demand lot has less than 90 percent utilization.

Out-of-district residents will pay $4 per day in high demand lots and $2 per day in low demand lots. Those residents will not get their first day free.

During an introductory period, parking attendants will be on site during peak hours to accept cash and credit card payments. Initially, only cash payments can be made at a pay station during off-peak hours.

Reserved parking spaces are available to vehicles registered in-district for $35.70 per month. This program guarantees spaces will be available from 5 a.m. to 10 a.m. Monday through Friday. To get on the monthly parking list, call 303-299-2900.
