Customer satisfaction surveys
Every three or four years, RTD conducts onboard Customer Satisfaction Surveys with bus, light rail, SkyRide, and Call-n-Ride passengers to help us learn more about our riders’ satisfaction with these services. The studies also provide us with helpful information on our riders' trip characteristics and demographic profiles.
If you are interested in receiving a copy of these surveys, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Right-of-way Access Policy
The proper notification of work to be performed in the right-of-way (ROW) is essential for safe and efficient operation. ROW is defined as the track way area located in between the restricted fenced area or within 10 feet of any outside rail of any track where no defined restricted area is present. This includes work to be performed above or below any track as well.A right-of-way access request/permit form must be submitted anytime:
- Work is to be performed by contractors in the ROW.
- Work being performed by maintenance/engineering that may affect train movements or personnel working the ROW.
- Track is made impassable for any reason, other than emergencies.
In order to receive an access permit to be in or work on the RTD alignment, a completed electronic access permit must be emailed to email@example.com no later than noon on the Thursday prior to the week the work will begin. When you submit a request, attendance is also required at the weekly Access Allocation meeting which will be held every Thursday at 2:00pm at the Elati Maintenance Facility at 2701 S Elati St; Englewood CO 80110. If no representative attends the meeting, the request will not be approved.
After receiving all necessary approvals, the work may be completed in accordance with the cautions and conditions indicated on the form. Work can begin when all personnel that will be in the ROW have completed the RTD on-track safety training certification and the certification is not expired. Please remember that the completed form must be in the possession of the work party at the work site.
Please note: The times indicated on the form for track access are estimates. Actual starting and ending times may vary depending on the work progress and the requirements for safe train operation. The controller is authorized to make revisions as necessary, provided there is mutual agreement by the permit holder and the controller and that the revision is documented by the controller.

Every day thousands of passengers board RTD buses and trains. Many of these passengers need the priority seating and securement area to access transit. Please follow our guidelines when sharing limited space on public transit.
Acceptable stroller size
Maximum size for an uncollapsed stroller is 48" long by 36" wide. A stroller should be equipped with an operable brake and should be capable of being stowed out of the aisle. Strollers that are not being occupied by children must be collapsed and stowed. If a bus or train is full, all strollers must be collapsed and stowed.
Using priority seating and securement areas
If the stroller fits within RTD’s size requirements, then passengers can occupy the priority seating and securement area. However, if the bus is full or may be become full or a disabled or elderly passenger boards, passengers must be prepared to move towards the rear of the bus or train and stow away the stroller.
Individuals with disabilities, who cannot carry their children, and children with disabilities, who need to remain in a stroller, may remain seated in the priority seating and securement area.
Using the lift to board a bus
The bus driver will kneel the bus, deploy the lift or extend the ramp upon request. You may still be required to collapse your stroller once on board.
Customers traveling with large items, such as luggage, grocery carts, and strollers may sit in the priority seating area, but should comply with the operator's request to relocate to other seating to accommodate an elderly or disabled passenger.
