Rides for Refugees: Help offset the cost of RTD passes for refugee clients at the IRC in Denver

International Rescue Committee - Denver, CO's Photo

THE STORY:

In light of RTD’s recent changes in support to nonprofit organizations, the IRC in Denver no longer has access to discounted bus tickets and passes for refugees who are rebuilding their lives in our community. Public transportation is the primary way newly arrived refugees get to and from work, ESL classes, health appointments, the grocery store and other important meetings. However, RTD riders pay rates that are among the highest in the country to use our public transit system—rates that are prohibitive for refugees and other people who are striving to attain financial self-sufficiency. We need your help to offset the cost of RTD tickets and monthly passes to ensure that refugee clients have continued access to transportation to support their resettlement, self-reliance and integration. Monthly pass (local): $99 Monthly pass (regional/airport): $171 10-ride ticket book (local): $23.50 10-ride ticket book (regional): $40.50
