Your schedule is important so we work hard to stay on ours

Proposed May Service Changes- with CORRECT URL

Effective: May 19, 2019
We previously sent these rider alerts with an incorrect email link. The link has now been corrected and is http://www.rtd-denver.com/servicechanges-may2019.shtml. We apologize for the inconvenience.

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 rail 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, rail, and specialty services.

These services changes will take effect on May 19, 2019.

RTD has scheduled four (4) public meetings to discuss service changes proposed for May 19, 2019. These meetings are designed to inform the public and to obtain input on the proposed changes. Find all meeting dates, times and locations at http://www.rtd-denver.com/servicechanges-may2019.shtml
