FlexRide Optimization Study

In 2024 Smart Commute is partnering with RTD and local jurisdictions to carry out a DRCOG-funded grant project focused on scaling the lessons learned from the workforce-focused 144th FlexRide grant project. While the 144th FlexRide is still running in RTD’s system, our team is focused on optimizing the services that all FlexRides provide throughout our service area.

144th FlexRide

Reliable and affordable transportation shouldn’t be a barrier to accessing employment opportunities. Smart Commute partnered with RTD, Broomfield, Thornton, Westminster, and local businesses to provide daily transit service to the employment center at 144th Avenue and I-25. This service was partially funded using a federal grant through September 2023 and is now a part of RTD’s regular service system.
