New Colorado vehicle registration fee will support state parks, public lands

Colorado residents who register a non-commercial vehicle will automatically pay for and receive a pass that allows entry to state parks under a bill Gov. Jared Polis signed Monday that would take effect in 2023.

In the meantime, the state will set the fee for the Keep Colorado Wild annual pass and work out other details of the program. Residents who don’t want to pay for the pass may opt out.

Vehicles that would be assessed the fee include:

  • Passenger motor vehicles
  • Light-weight trucks with an empty  weight of l 16,000 pounds or less
  • Motorcycles
  • Recreational vehicles

Money raised by the fee will be used to support state parks and public lands, including search and rescues; avalanche safety work; conservation; and equity, diversity, and inclusion programs.
