GOLDEN, Colo. (CBS4) – The City of Golden and RTD prepare to host a meeting Wednesday night to talk about a proposal that would cut bus services in that area. RTD says it evaluates transit service plans three times a year to meet community needs.
The change would reduce the frequency to Saturday’s light rail daytime schedule. Rail service would be every 30 minutes, rather than every 15 minutes.READ MORE: Semi Carrying Lemons Bursts Into Flames Causing Backups, Delays On EB I-70 Near Colorado Mills Parkway

City officials have concerns with the proposal, as well as continued concerns over the W line’s end-of-line station at the Jefferson County Administration Complex. City officials say that station was moved into a “fare zone” increasing fare from $3 to $5.25 compared to the next station on the line at Red Rocks Community College.MORE NEWS: Punch Bowl Social Reopens South Broadway Location In Denver
