The Lyons Taxi Voucher Program provides a transportation option for those people in Lyons who do not have their own transportation, or no reliable transportation, for travel between Lyons and Boulder /or/ between Lyons and Longmont. Vouchers can be picked up at Town Hall. The vouchers cover the taxi fare on zTrip rides up to $45 one-way.
The vouchers may be used for travel between Lyons (within town limits) and Boulder (city limits), and/or between Lyons (within town limits) and Longmont (city limits) in either direction.
Date it Expires: December 31, 2023. (Check with Town Hall, as this has been extended a few times)
Any tipping of drivers would be up to the individual rider.
EACH VOUCHER RIDE MUST START OR END IN LYONS
If the cost of the trip exceeds $45.00 the rider must pay the extra amount directly to the driver.

The voucher has no monetary value, but Boulder County and RTD will reimburse the Town for each ride up to a maximum of $45 per voucher. If the cost of the trip exceeds $45.00 the rider must pay the extra amount directly to the driver.
While the vouchers can be used by any Lyons resident, the reports by riders of long waits for responses from the taxi drivers, and such inconveniences, indicate that it is much easier for a person who owns a car to just use their own car to meet their needs and schedules.
Please contact Town Hall or Lisa Ramsey with questions; or ask the front desk personnel at Town Hall. Stop by and pick up the ticket at the front desk.

This program is administered by the Town of Lyons and jointly funded by Boulder County and the Regional Transportation District (RTD).
The zTrip voucher program is funded through our RTD tax and Boulder County. It is not grant funded. The RTD tax comes back to Lyons residents through the following programs: Lyons Flyer bus service, zTrip voucher program, and ECO pass funding. — zTrip pays their drivers and then bills Boulder County for reimbursement. BC pays the bill with RTD funding.
The zTrip voucher program does have its challenges, however, zTrip is the only taxi service the town is able to use as they are ADA compliant and that was a requirement of Boulder County.
To file a complaint or obtain more information regarding RTD’s complaint procedures, visit https://www.rtd-denver.com/reports-and-policies/title-vi-policy, call 303-299-6000; email firstname.lastname@example.org; or visit RTD’s administrative office at 1660 Blake Street, Denver, CO 80202.
