Today marks Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s 92nd birthday. As a public transportation agency, it’s worth noting that the event that brought Dr. King into the forefront of the non-violent civil rights movement started on a bus when a young woman named Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat.
RTD has received word that the agency can expect to receive $203,367,528 through the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2021 (CRRSAA), signed by President Donald J. Trump on Dec. 27, 2020.
Starting today, the Regional Transportation District (RTD)’s January service change will take effect.
RTD took the difficult action of reducing its workforce this week by about 300 people due to the economic challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.
