This month, the RTD Board of Directors elected Vince Buzek as its chair for the 2022 term. A Chicago native, Buzek grew up relying on public transportation. As a council member for the city and county of Broomfield from 1999 to 2007, Buzek was active in transit issues and participated in the decision for Broomfield to publicly support FasTracks. Buzek was elected to the RTD Board in November 2018 and took office in January 2019.
Beginning Tuesday, Jan. 18, RTD will detour Route 225/225T and temporarily close bus stops on a stretch of Baseline Road from 55th Street to Gaptor Road as part of a coordinated effort with the city of Boulder.
Starting this month, RTD's Board of Directors is moving ahead with a new structure to its committees, changes that the 15-member group approved late last year. The approach establishes four standing committees and a separate, independent audit committee. It also allows public commentary to be provided at and before committee meetings.
