We want to reassure the public that RFTA is actively tracking the spread of COVID-19 and coordinating with Public Health officials and local, state and federal authorities on a regular basis.
At this time, transit service continues to operate at a reduced level of service for those in need of its essential service. RFTA will continue to follow Public Health guidance (as we encourage everyone else to do) as this event evolves to ensure we are following the proper precautions in keeping our workforce and customers safe.
RFTA is undertaking practical measures to keep our buses and facilities sanitized and safe. Every day, we’re fogging buses, cleaning & sanitizing stops, stations, facilities, work spaces and offices. All buses used in service are disinfected at least every 24 hours.
RFTA and its partners appreciate the community’s patience during this challenging time. In the event RFTA does have to alter scheduled service further due to COVID-19, we will try and provide as much notification to the public as possible. We encourage our passengers to check RFTA’s social media and web page frequently for service updates.
The safety of our employees and customers is our number one priority at RFTA and we will work together as a community to weather this storm. We encourage the public to stay informed and prepared and recommend the following resources for guidance from Public Health officials.

Starting August 1, riders will board through the front doors and be required to pay a cashless fare.
By Colorado Executive Order, effective at midnight July 16th, 2020, masks or face coverings that cover both the nose and mouth are required by law.
Effective Sunday, June 28, RFTA will launch Phase 5 service plan, which affects the following routes: Bus Rapid Transit (BRT), Local, Hogback, Snowmass Village, Maroon Bells Shuttle and City of Aspen Free Shuttles
Phase 5 regional commuter service schedules will have approximately a 50% increase in the number of daily bus trips compared to Phase 4. The additional capacity that Phase 5 will provide should help to spread the demand throughout the day and enable RFTA to manage its limited number of backup buses more efficiently.
If you have a medical condition and cannot wear a mask to ride RFTA please contact the Aspen to Parachute community hotline at (970) 429-6186 during business hours from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday-Friday.
