The mission of the Colorado Rural Transit Assistance Program (RTAP) is to improve the safety and reliability of transit services for those in rural communities who rely on transit to access healthcare, jobs, education, recreation and community events.

Colorado RTAP has offered services since 1986. The program provides rural and specialized transit agencies with critical trainings and conferences, current information in our quarterly and electronic newsletter, resources in our lending library, and technical assistance. The RTAP program also provides supplemental financial assistance for agencies unable to cover the full cost of training for their employees. Please click here to obtain scholarship forms.

The Colorado RTAP program is administered by CASTA and is funded by our partners at the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) and the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT)
