FREE EcoPass!

How To Get a New or Replacement EcoPass:

EcoPasses are available to full-time, permanent residents of the Nederland Community Library District. They are funded by your property taxes.

ECOPASS HOURS: Town Hall staff is available to process new or replacement EcoPasses on Wednesday’s between 9am – 5pm. If you are unable to come in on a Wednesday,  please call Town Hall at 303-258-3266 ext. 0 to schedule an appointment. EcoPasses will be processed within 10 days. Pass holders will be emailed when their EcoPass is ready for pick up.

FOR ALL PASSES:  RTD requires that all residents show:

• a government-issued photo ID and

• other proof of residency.

RTD lists the following as acceptable forms of government-issued photo ID:

• State Issued Driver’s License (does not have to be issued by Colorado, but cannot be expired)

• State Issued ID

• Passport

RTD lists the following as the only acceptable documents for proof of residency:

Please check to make sure the physical address is listed. A Nederland PO Box does not demonstrate proof of residency.

• An official lease – Hand-written leases, month-to-month leases and letters from landlords are not accepted. 60+ days must still be on the lease.

• A current utility bill dated within 60 days

• A credit card or bank statement dated within 60 days with your physical property address listed. A letter from your bank or other types of documentation will not be accepted.

Please note: A driver’s license with a Nederland PO Box or physical address WILL NOT count as proof of residency.

For Minors (age 6 – 19): RTD requires that minors show a photo ID and current proof of residency.

Acceptable documents for minors are:

• School document showing residency (printed copy of the Household Information page from BVSD Infinite Campus), and

• A current school photo ID or passport

If a photo ID cannot be provided, a parent can qualify the minor child by providing the parent’s:

• Government-issued photo ID,

• Proof of guardianship (birth certificate, court document, or health insurance card showing the dependent’s name or matching ID numbers), and

• Current proof of residency (as outlined above).

Please bring your child with you to Town Hall so we can take their picture for the pass.

REPLACEMENT PASSES: To get a replacement pass, you need to re-start the process as if you have never received one before.

Please come by Town Hall with your photo ID and other proof of residency, and we will re-take your picture. The cost for a replacement pass is $10.00, which is due before your pass will be issued.


• If you are a renter or are otherwise living on a property you do not personally own, you must come in to Town Hall to re-demonstrate proof of residency every year. Failure to re-demonstrate proof will result in your pass being suspended. RTD will un-suspend your pass once you have re-demonstrated proof of residency.

• If you move out of the Nederland Community Library District, you are no longer eligible to use the pass and you must return it to Town Hall.
