SIGN UP NOW FOR YOUR 2012 ECO PASS AT THE PARKING OFFICE IN BUILDING 500!
RTD ECO PASS PILOT PROGRAM ON THE ANSCHUTZ MEDICAL CAMPUS
After in-depth research and consideration we are very excited to announce that the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus will be launching a transit pilot program in which University employees will be given the opportunity to purchase an RTD Eco Pass. This trial period will begin August 1, 2011 and will run through December 31, 2012. During this time the viability and success of the program will determine our ability to continue it into future years.
Full time and part time staff and faculty (50% FTE or greater) are eligible to participate in the Eco Pass program.
- RTD Eco Pass: $37.50 per month
- RTD Eco Pass plus unlimited parking in AMC permit parking lots: $65.00 per month
- RTD Eco Pass plus unlimited Reserved Parking in the Anschutz Medical Campus permit parking lots: $85.00 per month
New Eco Pass accounts and new Eco Pass accounts with parking are pro-rated on a half month basis only, depending on when the account is activated.
Notification for cancellation of the Eco Pass must be done in person at the Parking Office. At that time the Eco Pass must be turned into the Parking Office. Payroll deductions will continue until the Eco Pass is returned to the Parking Office.
There is a one time activation fee of $2.50. The replacement fee for a lost Eco Pass is $25.00 the first time and $50.00 the second time.
Guaranteed Ride Home with Eco Pass
University employees who have the Anschutz Medical Campus Eco Pass are eligible for the Guaranteed Ride Home program. This program provides the Anschutz Medical Campus employees a free taxi ride home in case of an emergency or an unexpected event. If the employee becomes sick, needs to attend to a family member or must unexpectedly work late, they will have a ride home. The Guaranteed Ride Home cannot be used for prescheduled medical or other appointments, on-the-job injuries, or in situations for which transportation could have been scheduled in advance.
Your RTD Eco Pass is not just for commuting to and from campus. You have unlimited rides on regular fixed route service provided by RTD and all RTD contractor-operated fixed route service, including bus and LightRail. Eco Pass includes the Call-n-Ride Service. The SkyRide will only cost $5.00 with your Eco Pass. Plan your trip at

The benefits resulting from the RTD Eco pass program include:
Decreased cost to access public transportation will provide alternative methods of commuting to campus as well as providing transportation throughout the RTD service area.
Decreased on-campus parking, which will help alleviate the over-demand for limited parking resources.
Contribution toward the University Sustainable Campus goals by reducing the amount of automobile emissions from a reduced amount of personal vehicles used commuting to campus, as well as transportation throughout the RTD service area.
Increases take home salary by using pre-tax dollars instead of after-tax dollars
