Operator of the Month

Bus and train operators, and staff, who have gone above and beyond

February 2019:
RTD Operators

This month we would like to feature commendations that reflect the commitment our operators make to provide safe, clean, reliable, courteous and accessible service for our customers throughout the district.

RTD bus and train operators have a tough job. They are the first faces many of our riders see first thing in the morning and the last on our way home in the evenings. Operators are responsible for route information, employing defensive driving techniques, maintaining a professional demeanor under stress, making public address announcements, answering and solving transit-related concerns, and exercising judgment under a variety of constantly changing operating conditions. Every day we trust and rely on them to get us where we need to go safely and on-time.
