New Flyer XD60 Articulated Transit Bus (Free MetroRide)

These 12 articulated buses dating from 2014 are currently stored out of service as the Free MetroRide route they usually operate is suspended. Apart from the Free MetroRide livery, they differ from RTD’s regular XD60s by having three sets of doors rather than two and less seating.

Interior and Seating

RTD’s 1800 Series XD60 buses have 45 seats, which is 12 less than their 9300 series counterparts due to them having extra standing room to accommodate Downtown Denver commuters on relatively short runs. Six seats can be tipped up to create two dedicated spots for wheelchair / mobility devices.
