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.
