RTD hosts telephone town halls to discuss COVID-19, changes to services, project updates and answer questions

In an effort to keep the community informed about COVID-19-related changes and other topics, RTD will be hosting a series of telephone town halls in April and May in each of the 15 districts in its service area. Other topics to be discussed are safety efforts, status of ongoing projects and updates for the region. The forum will also answer questions from the listening audience. A Spanish language telephone town hall in will be hosted in May.

These interactive calls allow RTD board directors and staff to have a conversation with members of the communities the agency serves. Participants will have the opportunity to ask their elected board member questions and participate in live polls during the event by using their keypads to answer or to enter responses through the RTD website.  

About 30,000 residents in each of the 15 RTD districts will be called at random through an automated system and invited to take part in the public telephone forum.

To participate, call 855-543-3425 or visit www.RTD-Denver.com/TownHall to listen in live to any of the district events. Interested parties are encouraged to pre-register in advance through the RTD website to automatically receive a call when the event starts.
