Stop Requested: Eldora

Stop Requested : Eldora Mountain Resort

Tucked away in the Rockies just west of Nederland, lurking in the shadows of the Arapaho Peaks, is Boulder’s home ski area – Eldora Mountain Resort. Just a quick 40-minute bus ride through the scenic Boulder Canyon on the Route NB, Eldora is the closest ski area to Boulder and the northern suburbs of the Denver metro area.

Stop Requested – Northglenn•112th Station

Places are reopening their doors, and we’re slowly navigating our way back to the way things used to be. We’re looking for new places to eat, new places to recreate and new places to safely connect with each other (at a distance, of course). So grab your phone, purchase a ticket, hop on a bus and/or train, and explore the best that our metro area has to offer. This is Stop Requested!

Hop on Board!

A reflection on inclusion

Hindsight is 20/20. In optometric terms, having 20/20 vision means you have perfect visual acuity and the ability to see the sharpness of objects. The term is used loosely for seeing things exactly as they are.

Since COVID-19 hit, RTD is far from doing business as usual. The agency has had to adapt to the pandemic in creative ways. One way is having newly hired light rail operators clean light rail cars on the line.

To our riders: thank you

This last year has been difficult. Due to the operator shortage, we had to cancel trips often with little notice. This was a major inconvenience, particularly for light rail commuters. With the COVID-19 pandemic, ridership has declined 70%, necessitating a 40% reduction in service.

Thank You!

What Sustainability Means to RTD

We’ve all seen the rotating image of what it looks like to transport 200 people. The image of nearly 200 cars on the road embodies gridlock. As the image rotates you see that the same amount of passengers fit on three buses or alternately one train.
