Louisville, CO – As traffic congestion increases in Boulder County, commuters traveling east-west can get out of their cars and onto RTD for free thanks to a new program promoting the RTD JUMP transit service. The City of Boulder, in partnership with Commuting Solutions and Boulder Transportation Connections (BTC) are excited to announce the Ride the JUMP program, aimed at increasing awareness and ridership of the JUMP service, that operates along Arapahoe, connecting Boulder to Erie and Lafayette.
From now until November 30, commuters who want to give the JUMP a try, can sign up with their email address and receive three free one-day RTD passes using the RTD Mobile Ticketing app. The JUMP bus is a high-frequency service and is an ideal route for East Boulder County residents looking for easier, more reliable access to Boulder.
“As the Arapahoe corridor becomes more congested, we are excited to promote the JUMP as a viable commute option for the workforce traveling along the corridor,” explains Jean Sanson, Senior Transportation Planner for the City of Boulder. “To inspire people to try the service, the City of Boulder is subsidizing a limited number of one-day passes.”
To learn more about the JUMP bus service and how commuters can receiv their FREE one-day passes, visit ridethejump.org and follow the steps.
