Just yesterday as I was riding a bus, my eyes happened to light on one of those red and white “Proposed Service Changes” that RTD issue about every six months. When I looked at it I was shocked at the proposals. A tremendous number of routes are up for severe reductions. This will make it less convenient to use the bus, especially if one has to transfer from one bus to another.
Typical of RTD, public hearings are scheduled before many are even aware of the proposals. One of the first is in Boulder at the East Boulder Senior Center, 550 Sioux Drive Monday, 3 October, at 7pm. Please alert your friends to join us there to prevent at least the worst of these proposals. Grab a copy and familiarize yourself with these threats.
If you cannot make it to a meeting, please submit your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org <mailto:email@example.com> no later than 14 Oct. Or fax a letter to 303.299.2227 <tel:303.299.2227>.
