Annexation into the District

Annexation (or inclusion) into the Regional Transportation District (RTD) can occur in a number of different ways. While the original District boundaries were established by the State Legislature when the District was created in 1969, the boundaries have since expanded to include new areas previously at the periphery of the District.
