EcoPass Program

With generous support from Boulder County, the Town of Lyons has continued its EcoPass program for all Town residents, through 2017. The only change to the program from previous years is that there will now be a small annual fee for the EcoPass that will be due before the end of March (the pass has a retail value of over $2,000). The cost of this fee is in the process of being finalized—expect the annual fee to be between $25 and $50 with exceptions / discounts for students / elderly / low income residents.

We will communicate the exact details of the program, price and how to purchase, early in the New Year. Until then current EcoPasses will automatically renew in the New Year—no one needs to worry or do anything strait away. Just keep using and enjoying free public transit!

Apply for an EcoPass

Download, print and fill in the EcoPass Application Form and bring it to Town Hall (come on Tuesday mornings, Wednesdays or Thursdays and ask for Toby Russell). Alternatively, copies are available at Town Hall.

A photo ID (Drivers License) AND proof of Lyons residence (Utility Bill OR Renter’s Agreement) AND $25 check or cash are required. We will take a photo of you that day, and send to RTD, as part of the application. 

Passes normally arrive 8-10 working days after the application is submitted.

Replace an EcoPass

Email (include the following information in the email: Name, Address, and Phone Number), for the Town to issue an authorization form for a replacement. Alternatively, forms are available at Town Hall. 

A Town staff member will contact you when the form has been completed, and arrange a pick-up at Town Hall. You will then need to take the authorization form to the RTD Boulder Transit Center to get a replacement card. RTD charges $10 for replacement cards.
