RTD Accountability Committee Survey

Last summer, the RTD Board in collaboration with Governor Polis and the transportation committee chairs of the Colorado General Assembly formed the RTD Accountability Committee. The purpose of the Committee is to provide an independent and objective analysis of RTD's operations and develop a set of recommendations for improvement to the operations and statutes related to RTD. The Committee is independent of RTD and hosted by the Denver Regional Council of Governments.

Prior to finalizing their recommendations, the Committee wants to hear your opinions on the draft recommendations. This 3-minute survey summarizes the core recommendations

Deadline June 15: The survey can be found here

Free Recreation Shuttle Bus Service is Back

shuttle

Rather then driving you can now take the bus, Boulder County is once again offering recreational busses to the Hessie Trailhead and Eldorado Canyon State park. Two free shuttle bus services to popular recreation and open space areas in Boulder County return for the season on Memorial Day weekend.

The Hessie Trailhead Shuttle and the Eldorado Canyon State Park Shuttle are free shuttle buses that offer public lands visitors a convenient way to travel to recreate.

Full for recreation shuttle information, routes and maps, visit boco.org/shuttles.

Accessible Boulder: ADA Self-Evaluation & Transition Plan

self evaluation

The City of Boulder wans to ensure access to the transportation system for all users. An ADA Self-Evaluation assesses how well the city’s transportation system—such as sidewalks, multi-use paths, curb ramps, pedestrian signals and crossings, and transit
stops—complies with the ADA. The self-evaluation will look at existing policies, engage with the public and inventory our transportation infrastructure to identify barriers and opportunities for improvement.
