RTD Seeks Input from Public to Achieve Vision

The Regional Transportation District (RTD) is working to create a long-term plan/vision for the agency. Reimagine RTD kicked off in late 2019 but was put on hold due to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic until February.

Reimagine RTD provides an objective, data-driven process to engage customers, regional partners, employees and community members in a discussion about how to address challenges and to determine RTD’s role in meeting the long-term mobility needs of the region.

Two main elements of the planning effort include developing a near-term “System Optimization Plan” and creating a longer-term visionary “Mobility Plan for the Future.”

Currently, RTD is seeking input from the public to help develop a roadmap to achieve the vision set by RTD’s principles.
