Service Changes

Three times a year, usually in Winter, Spring and Fall, RTD introduces bus and rail service modifications. These changes help to enhance service for our passengers and enable better connections with bus, rail, and specialty services. These changes are based on traffic pattern studies, ridership, economic factors, and community feedback as we strive to create the best-possible transit experience.
