RTD hosts telephone town hall on June 30 to discuss launch of fare study and equity analysis


Public meeting will initiate dialogue and gather feedback as agency begins evaluation

The Regional Transportation District (RTD) will host a district-wide telephone town hall at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, June 30, to initiate dialogue with the community about fares and to discuss how transit equity will be a central focus to the overall study.

Participants are invited to join General Manager and CEO Debra A. Johnson, Senior Manager of Transit Oriented Communities Bill Sirois and Manager of Market Development Theresa Rinker as they introduce the steps involved in the process, which is anticipated to take at least 18 months. They will also ask participants to provide feedback about RTD fares and the importance of transit equity as it pertains to affordability, accessibility and mobility options.

These interactive calls are hosted several times per year and allow RTD to have a conversation with members of the communities the agency serves about current issues and topics regarding services. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions during the event and participate in live polls by using their keypad to answer or by entering responses through the RTD website.  

Up to 100,000 residents in the RTD district will be called at random through an automated system and invited to take part in the public telephone forum.

Residents can also participate by calling in on the day of the event at 855-543-3425 or visiting www.RTD-Denver.com/TownHall. Interested parties are encouraged to pre-register in advance through the RTD website to automatically receive a call when the event begins. An audio recording will be made available on the RTD townhall webpage after the event has concluded for those interested in learning more about RTD’s fare study and equity analysis.
