RTD hosts telephone town halls to discuss fares, adjustments to services, project updates and answer questions

15 remote events will be held in October and November for all RTD districts 

DENVER (Oct. 4, 2021) – The Regional Transportation District (RTD) Board of Directors and RTD leadership will host a series of telephone town halls in October and November in each of the 15 districts in its service area. Residents are invited to join the dialogue to discuss and provide input on key topics affecting the agency, including the status of services as we move through COVID-19, the recommendations from Reimagine RTD which affect future build back of service, the fare study and equity analysis, and more. The forum will also answer questions from the listening audience.

These interactive calls allow RTD Board directors and staff to have a conversation with members of the communities the agency serves. Participants will have the opportunity to ask their elected board member questions and participate in live polls during the event by using their keypads to answer or to enter responses through the RTD website.

About 30,000 residents in each of the 15 RTD districts will be called at random through an automated system and invited to take part in the hour-long public telephone forum. Residents may locate their district and elected Board member by using the lookup feature on the Board of Directors’ webpage.

To participate, call 855-543-3425 or visit www.RTD-Denver.com/TownHall to listen in live to any of the district events. Interested parties are encouraged to register in advance through the RTD website to automatically receive a call when the event starts.
