The City and County of Denver is partnering with the Regional Transportation District (RTD) to gain a better understanding of the transportation needs for Denver youth. Through this pilot project, 1,500 Denver high school students, ages 14 – 18, will be provided with a MyRide Smart Card preloaded with bus/rail fare, which can be used for all regular RTD bus rides, Call-n-Ride, SkyRide, and rail services.

Picture Day will be this Monday, August 28. Students will be taken to the Auditorium to take their pictures during their math classes. Students will also be receiving their IDs on this day.
