RTD Express Bus Riders Disgruntled After Routes Closed
LAKEWOOD, Colo. (CBS4)– Riders on RTD’s express buses voiced their frustration at a public meeting Wednesday evening after their routes were cancelled once the West Line for light rail opened last month.
Six express bus routes were closed on the west side.
“We need to arrive at Civic Center Station, the train does not accommodate that, so now we need our express back so we can have our lives back,” said RTD rider Sharon Kinvig.
RTD said it’s common practice to re-evaluate bus routes when a new light rail line opens.
RTD said one of the eliminated routes, the 1-16X will return to service May 28, the day after Memorial Day, after what they called “extensive customer feedback.”
