Honesty and transparency focus of RTD’s new newsroom
Welcome to the RTD News Stop – your one-stop shop for news, facts, features and all you need to know about Denver’s Regional Transportation District. RTD runs one of the largest mass transit systems in the United States with a service area that spans eight counties and three million people. There’s a lot to communicate, and we want to make sure we keep everyone informed and up-to-speed on the latest RTD news and important decisions.
That’s why we are increasing the news we share with the cities we serve, our riders, the public and the journalists who cover us with the launch of the News Stop – a dedicated newsroom section on our website.
Our commitment is to be transparent and share the good, the bad and the ugly, and explain what we are doing, why we are doing it, and how we are facing our challenges and opportunities. And as we launch the News Stop we commit to keeping you informed about a developing situation regarding RTD’s role in the proposal to locate the National Medal of Honor Museum in Denver.
Our goal is that the News Stop will become the first place you check for timely, accurate information about RTD. There are many excellent news outlets covering RTD and transportation locally and nationally. Our newsroom is not intended to replace reporting by outside, independent journalists, but rather to provide a good, solid source of information. We value the role journalists play in reporting about public agencies to hold us accountable, and we hope that our media partners turn to our newsroom as a resource for timely information, photos, video and perspectives to help inform their storytelling.
We want the chance to share our voice as well as the personalities and expertise of the people who work with us. We want to expand the conversation about transit and how public demands intersect with public resources.
We are eager to hear what RTD news you want to know more about and look forward to feedback about what we are reporting. You can share your thoughts by contacting us.
And, once again, welcome to the News Stop – communications that move you.
