Rider alerts: Route 153

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

When special events, construction or maintenance interfere with our schedule, we want you to know about it. Here you will find information on detours, delays, stop closures, elevator outages and other issues that may affect your route or station.

Proposed August Service Changes

Effective: August 26, 2018
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 August 26, 2018.

RTD has scheduled seven (7) public meetings to discuss service changes proposed for August 26, 2018. 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-august2018.shtml

Route 153: It is proposed to discontinue the weekend northbound trip at 4:35 a.m. from Aurora Metro Center Station due to low ridership. Alternate trips are available approximately 30 minutes earlier or later.
