RTD will maintain current bus and rail service under Denver stay-at-home orders
RTD continues to provide vital connections for transit dependent, essential employees throughout the region
The Regional Transportation District (RTD) will maintain current transit service levels during Mayor Michael Hancock’s stay-at-home orders for the City and County of Denver. RTD provides crucial connections for many essential workers throughout the Denver metro area. Public transportation has been deemed a critical service by Governor Jared Polis in his executive order for non-essential businesses to reduce in-person workforce by 50 percent.
While there has been a large drop in ridership during the COVID-19 crisis, RTD’s buses, trains and paratransit services remain a vital lifeline for essential commuters, health care workers, public safety employees, government employees, grocery store workers and others continuing operations across the metro region. RTD continues to serve people who must work or take care of others, and for whom other transportation options are severely limited.
RTD staff will continue to monitor operations, be nimble and make adjustments as necessary.
