DENVER (CBS4) – RTD approved a rate change that will give low income riders a discount in exchange for an increase for other riders last week. A final vote by RTD Board of Directors sealed that deal Tuesday night.

In the rate change that was approved by the RTD Board Committee last Tuesday night, local fares jump to $3, regional fares $5.25 and rides to DIA cost $10.50. The entire board will vote on the increase Tuesday evening.
