Starting in February, the Regional Transportation District will host public meetings and outreach events for proposed service changes that could happen in May as part of its plan to address the ongoing operator shortage.

The agency will host 18 public meetings from February 19 through March 5 to provide the community opportunities to learn more about and provide feedback on modifications to the agency’s bus, rail and special services.

RTD staff will be at 15 stations in February to provide information about the public meetings.

“These modifications will help the agency better aligns its service with its current level of staffing, bringing relief to employees and providing riders with more reliable service,” the agency said in a Thursday press release.

The changes are intended to maximize efficiency of existing resources, reduce duplication of service and make “better connections” with bus, train and specialty services.

Members of the public can currently provide input about the May service change by emailing service.changes@rtd-denver.com or by faxing comments to 303-299-2227.

RTD’s board of directors will consider all public comments about the upcoming service change before taking action in March, according to the agency. Modifications will take effect on May 17.
