RTD provides two final meeting opportunities today for proposed January service change
Two final public meetings take place today for the Regional Transportation District (RTD)’s proposed January service change, providing the community with virtual opportunities to learn more about and weigh in on modifications to the agency’s bus, rail and special services. There will be one mid-day Facebook Live meeting and one evening meeting offered in Spanish through Microsoft Teams.
The changes for January 2021 are being proposed in response to continued low ridership; to rebalance service, to meet the demands of routes with the highest ridership; and to suspend underperforming service, to allow for more service on routes with increased ridership. RTD is currently operating under a COVID-19 plan, providing about 40% less service than in January 2020.
If unable to attend meetings, the public can provide input about the proposed January service change through Wednesday, Oct. 14. Multiple avenues are available: by emailing [email protected]; by calling 303-299-2004; or by faxing comments to 303-299-2227.
During these meetings, RTD’s service planning staff will highlight the proposed service changes and field questions from the public. All feedback will be reviewed and taken into consideration as RTD prepares the final service plan.
Complete details about the January service change, and how to participate in these public meetings, are located on this RTD webpage. Presentations about the proposed changes recorded in English and Spanish have been posted on this page for public review.
Today’s meeting schedule is as follows:
- Noon (English) via Facebook Live
- 6 p.m. (Spanish) via Microsoft Teams
