Changes Impacting Your Service

At RTD, we're committed to building and operating the most productive, efficient transit system for the communities we serve. Every day, activities occur within our community that can affect our transit system – traffic patterns, economic factors, ridership and customer feedback. We respond by making changes to our bus and train system three times a year. These changes help to improve our service by maximizing the efficiency of existing resources, reducing duplication of service, and making better connections with bus, train, and specialty services.

The effective date for these service changes has not yet been determined. Please refer to our scheduling page to view our current COVID-19 Service Plan.
