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 209: It is proposed to reduce the morning and evening rush-hour service frequency from 15 minutes to 30 minutes, and reduce the midday service frequency from 30 minutes to 60 minutes, due to low ridership.

In cooperation with the City of Boulder and University of Colorado, it is also proposed to discontinue Route STAMPEDE between Colorado Avenue/Discovery Drive and Marine Street/30th Street, due to University of Colorado Boulder taking over this portion of the route with Buff bus service.
