RTD Accountability Committee

GDT > RTD Info > Accountability Committee

Understanding the important role RTD plays in the success of the Denver region, in the summer of 2020, Governor Polis and the transportation committee chairs of the Colorado General Assembly, in collaboration with the RTD Board created the RTD Accountability Committee (the Committee). The purpose of the Committee was to provide an independent and objective analysis of RTD’s operations and develop a set of recommendations for improvement to the operations and statutes related to RTD. The Committee undertook an analysis of the Agency, studied many other similar transit agencies and produced the RTD Accountability Committee Final Report which outlined nine areas of recommendations proposed by the Committee:

  • Spend Federal COVID-19 Relief Funds to Rebuild Ridership and Improve Operations
  • Improve Operator Retention
  • Develop Subregional Service Councils
  • Explore Board Structure Modifications Subject to Additional Study and Input
  • Explore FasTracks Options
  • Improve Reporting Metrics and Transparency
  • Improve Fixed-Route and Paratransit Service Provision
  • Leverage Partnerships for Resources and Services
  • Simplify Fares and Pass Program
