Service Changes

Three times a year, usually in Winter, Spring and Fall, RTD introduces bus and rail service modifications. These changes help to enhance service for our passengers and enable better connections with bus, rail, and specialty services. These changes are based on traffic pattern studies, ridership, economic factors, and community feedback as we strive to create the best-possible transit experience.

Proposed Fall 2016 service changes

In the first half of 2016, we have launched 6 new Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) routes with the Flatiron Flyer, debuted Denver's first commuter rail line with service to Denver International Airport on the University of Colorado A Line, and we opened the first segment of the B Line to Westminster. All these changes warranted review and adjustment of some current routes in order to best accommodate our growing ridership.

These service changes will take place on October 23, 2016

We're excited to offer our customers new transit options in 2016 with the opening of the Northwest Rail Line, or B Line, to Westminster on July 25, and the Gold Rail Line, or G line, to Arvada and Wheat Ridge, in Fall 2016. The new rail lines represent another major step in developing a comprehensive transit network to meet the transportation needs of our customers in the greater Denver area.
