WEATHER ALERT: Blizzard Warning Issued, Biggest Snowstorm In 15 Years For Denver

“Multiple buses stuck throughout the day and freezing rail equipment have made it difficult to provide service as conditions worsened. RTD will monitor the situation and determine when to resume service based on conditions and safety,” officials wrote in a news release.

One bus was seen sitting at 9th Avenue and Cook Street in Denver’s Congress Park. Another sat stranded near Colorado Boulevard and 104th Avenue. No passengers were seen on board.

RTD says it will resume both bus and light rail service when conditions improve.
