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.

Proposed Service Changes
April 2016

We want your input

At RTD, we're committed to building and operating the most productive, efficient transit system for the communities we serve. Every day, activities occur within our community that can affect our transit system – traffic patterns, economic factors, ridership and customer feedback. We respond by making changes to our bus and rail system three times a year. These changes help to improve our service by maximizing the efficiency of existing resources, reducing duplication of service, and making better connections with bus, rail, and specialty services. These services changes will take effect on April 24, 2016.

For all questions or comments regarding current service and requests for new service, please email service.changes@rtd-denver.com.

We’re excited to offer our customers new transit options in 2016 with the opening of the University of Colorado A line to the airport and the R line through Aurora. The new rail lines represent significant milestones in improved connectivity, better travel times, and restructured bus service to meet the transit needs of our customers.
