Denver Transit Plan

Denver’s transit system is made up of commuter rail, light rail, buses, FlexRide and other special services. Our plan for the city says…

  • Information should be improved, bike shelters provided and publicly available amenities close to stations developed.
  • Commuter rail frequencies in the city should be increased and additional late night trains introduced.
  • Light rail frequencies in the city should be increased and the L Line ‘Central Rail Extension’ built.
  • Bus frequencies in the city should be increased, connections with rail prioritized and all bus stops should be upgraded.
  • A ‘firm but compassionate’ approach should taken towards individuals engaging in poor behavior on the transit system.
  • BRT on Colfax, Broadway, Colorado and Federal should be built out as soon as possible with dedicated lanes and level boarding.
  • The Downtown Bus Plan will speed up RTD buses, expand Downtown frequencies, and multiply connections for minimal cost and operator increases.
  • The Front Range Passenger Rail project should be routed through Downtown Denver to serve Denver Union Station.
  • Phase II of the South Broadway & I-25 Improvement projects should be paused and the design fully reviewed.
  • The Peña Blvd Project must listen to all concerns raised regarding what is essence a highway expansion scheme.
