The Regional Transportation District (RTD) wants to keep the community informed about current projects, provide updates for the region and answer questions from participants. To do that, the agency is hosting a series of hourlong telephone town halls in October for each of the 15 districts in its service area.
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 public telephone forum.
To participate, call 855-543-3425 or visit www.rtd-denver.com/town-hall to listen in live to any of the district events. Interested parties are encouraged to pre-register in advance through the RTD website to automatically receive a call when the event starts.
