RTD holds three service change throughout the year, with the following being in January. If you would love to evaluate in on those changes, you can do so starting in October.
” The objective is truly that we’re ensuring we’re putting the correct amount of service out and also we’re fulfilling the requirements of our customers,” Jaquez described. “So we constantly listen to our consumers before carrying out solution adjustments, as well as we view what ridership is doing so that we can respond appropriately.”
