The Regional Transportation District (RTD) Board of Directors approved extending through December 31, 2013 the allowance for all active duty U.S. Military personnel to ride free on all RTD services.
All active members of the Air Force, Army, Marines, Navy, Coast Guard, National Guard, and Reserves are entitled to ride free on any RTD service including special services such as SkyRide and BroncosRide.
RTD Chairman Lee Kemp said, “RTD is honored once again to extend this service to our active military personnel.
RTD recognizes the sacrifices our military personnel have to make every day and we hope that in some small way, this helps reward their service to this country.”
To be eligible to ride for free, all active duty military personnel must either:
1. Be wearing the appropriate Class A or Class B uniforms. These types of uniforms are described as:
The Class A uniform is worn with the dress uniform service jacket and with all decorations, a tie, and a rank insignia.
The Class B uniform is a little less formal, without the dress uniform service jacket and is usually worn with an open shirt collar.
2. Present an active duty military ID card with the words “Geneva Convention Identification Card” on the bottom.
