Jeffco Open Space (JCOS) is excited to announce a pilot program giving park visitors the opportunity to take advantage of reduced fares from rideshare company Lyft, in hopes of helping with parking congestion at some of our busiest Front Range trailheads and access points. JCOS wants to help improve access to our parks while encouraging alternative transportation and reducing congestion at our trailheads or parking areas. 

Use discount code JCOS2021 at the following pilot program locations:  

  • Mount Falcon Park – Morrison Trailhead (shows up as Mount Falcon Park East Trailhead in Google): 3852 Vine Street, Morrison, CO 80465

This discount code allows Lyft users to take advantage of a $2.50 reduction in their fare each direction until mid-September 2022. Discounts will be valid during park hours, seven days a week, to the locations listed above. These locations were selected based upon visitor volume, available designated parking, reducing neighborhood/overflow parking, and illegal parking. Additional variables such as cell service and driver availability were also considered.  

Based on the findings of the pilot program, JCOS will determine program longevity and potential expansion to serve more trailheads throughout our park system. Offering additional opportunities for those interested in visiting our parks without a personal vehicle, ultimately improving limited and un-safe parking conditions.
