RTD Public Meeting @ Council Chambers
Feb 13 @ 6:00 pm

The City of Golden and representatives from the Regional Transportation District (RTD) will host a meeting at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 13 in City Hall Council Chambers, 911 10th St., to facilitate discussion and input on a series of proposed RTD service adjustments that could occur in May 2019.

The proposed changes suggested for May 2019 include an additional cut to the Saturday service. If enacted, this service reduction would change the frequency of Saturday “daytime” rail service from every 15 minutes to every 30 minutes to match Saturday evening and Sunday all-day service. RTD staff estimates that this service reduction would save approximately $134,000 a year based upon the reduction from seven all-day trains to six. The recommendation is based upon Saturday ridership levels below RTD standards.

Golden City Council has identified concerns with the new proposal, as well as a continued concern that the W Line end-of-line station at the Jefferson County Administration Complex was placed into a “fare zone” that results in a dramatically increased fare ($5.25 vs $3.00) compared to the next station on the line at Red Rocks Community College.

RTD evaluates its overall service plan for buses and rail three times a year. This effort is intended to match the level of service provided within the district to available resources. Potential service enhancements or reductions are identified and presented to the public in a series of public meetings prior to board consideration and action. In the past, the City of Golden has requested adjustments to the RTD recommendations, most recently in August 2017 to request that RTD hold off on reducing the frequency of trains for non-peak (mid-day) hour rail service from 15 minute to 30 minute frequency. Based in part on our request, RTD did not reduce “mid-day” weekday or Saturday rail service frequency in those changes that went into effect in January 2018. Comments about the proposal can be provided to RTD representatives at the February 13th meeting, be sent directly to the RTD board, or at RTD public hearings to be scheduled in March.
