RTD Public Meeting Regarding Proposed Service Cuts @ Council Chambers
Feb 20 @ 6:00 pm

RTD will host a public meeting in Golden City Hall Council Chambers on February 20 at 6 p.m. to discuss proposed service changes, which would eliminate the 16L (“limited”) bus, which provides express service between Golden and Denver, and instead increase 16 local bus service hours and pick-up times to fill in the gaps.

RTD is proposing many such service cuts across their service area in an effort to reduce the number of operators necessary to provide RTD transit services. According to RTD, “Currently RTD must excessively mandate operators to work overtime, leading to poor work-life quality and a vicious cycle of recruiting and attrition.”

RTD had originally planned to end the 16L service when the W Line was made operational in 2013. The 16L was maintained longer than planned, however, because the W Line provides an imperfect substitute for the 16L bus due to the higher fare for the light rail, and because the light rail line terminates at Union Station, whereas the 16L takes passengers to the Civic Center end of downtown.

RTD is hosting public meetings all over the Denver metro area to allow RTD customers to learn more about and weigh in on the proposed service changes. The Golden public meeting will occur on February 20 at 6 p.m. in Golden City Hall Council Chambers, 911 10th St.

If you are unable to attend the meeting in person, you can also provide your input by emailing service.changes@rtd-denver.com or faxing comments to 303-299-2227 no later than March 5.
