This service will be operating on Mondays-Fridays and will stop at the following locations: Boulder Transit Center (14th & Walnut), Nederland Park-n-Ride and Nederland High School. No other stops along the route will be served. Due to the length of this route and the nature of the roadways, the one-way travel time will be approximately 2 hours and 15 minutes.

THe RTD and VIA operateed buses will both have a $4 standard fare ($2.00 discount fare) and standard RTD fare policies for the N route will apply: Eco Pass will be accepted as valid fare on the routes. Standing passengers will not be permitted on either service due to safety concerns. More information on these services can be found at: www.rtd-denver.com
It is very important for everyone to be judicious with dispensing this information to the public, and to focus the information towards the Nederland community. We want to ensure that the service is not overwhelmed given its limitied capacity and that all Nederland residents have the ability to ride to and from Boulder.
