Downtown Bus Plan

GDT > Reimagine RTD (GDT’s Version) > Downtown Bus Plan

RTD bus journeys can be made faster with safer and easier transfer experiences in Downtown via a series of inexpensive and common-sense routing adjustments to form transit “Trunks”.

  • “Trunk” lines are made up of multiple transit routes that merge together to create ultra-high frequency service over a common stretch of track/street.
  • 15 existing RTD bus routes should have their Downtown “last miles” aligned between DUS and Civic Center.
  • The former RTD Free MetroRide bus fleet can then be optimally repurposed to fill Downtown’s largest transit gap: Decatur – Federal Station to 38th & Blake Station.
  • The high frequency “Trunks” can be further enhanced by DOTI investment in block-long bus stops to make transfers safer, easier, quicker and prevent buses from bunching.
