The Regional Transportation District (RTD), Denver’s regional public transit authority, has partnered with Lyft to bring Lyft’s “Nearby Transit” feature to the Denver area. Through this partnership, RTD transit schedule and route information can be viewed within the Lyft app. After downloading the Lyft app, riders can use the “Nearby Transit” feature to plan multimodal trips that fit their travel needs – incorporating RTD bus and rail, and Lyft ridehailing and scooter options. RTD hopes that this partnership will help to close first/last mile gaps and make it easier for the public to utilize existing transit services. “Nearby Transit” has now launched in seven U.S. cities: Denver, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Seattle, and Washington, DC.
