RTD to host public meetings May 23 and May 24 on progress of
CO Highway 119 Bus Rapid Transit project
The Regional Transportation District (RTD) is holding public meetings May 23 and May 24 on the progress toward
implementing Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) service on CO Highway 119, between and within the cities of Boulder and
The meetings, which are open to the public, will seek input and provide an update on the process. A consultant
team, led by Parsons Transportation Group, is evaluating alternatives to the growing congestion and travel demand
in the corridor as well as environmental impacts, multimodal access, transit reliability and corridor transit travel time.
This project advances one of the recommendations from the Northwest Area Mobility Study (NAMS), which was
completed by RTD in 2014. NAMS developed consensus among northwest area stakeholders, the Colorado
Department of Transportation (CDOT) and RTD to implement cost-effective mobility improvements until the
Northwest Rail Line to Longmont can be built.
