Seat Design Change

To improve light rail service for passengers using mobility devices, such as wheelchairs, scooters, and walkers, RTD redesigned the seating on light rail vehicles to provide additional space to board and maneuver. This effort includes removing seats next to the current wheelchair areas. This alteration also provides additional standing room when not being used by passengers with mobility devices.

We appreciate your understanding as RTD further enhances the light rail experience for all members of our community. Learn more.
