The RTD Citizen Advisory Committee is looking for five new members.

For the past 10 years, this collection of 17 people advised RTD on policy related to FasTracks, the voter-approved expansion bringing five new transit lines to the region. Now its role has expanded.

In addition to FasTracks, members will start advising RTD on other projects and inform the agency’s long-term vision. That means you could inform decisions on the future overhaul of Denver’s transit system, creating walkable and bikeable neighborhoods around RTD stations, affordable fares, and new fare technology that so far has been lacking. Members will also act as reps for their community.

“We rely on informed citizens who can join us to guide and provide advice to RTD,” Co-chair Bob Rizzuto stated in a press release. “We want people who truly want to make a difference as we move forward.”

The official committee meetings are once every four months, with a couple work sessions in between, according to the group’s schedule.

Now that FasTracks is almost finished, a lot of people are wondering what’s next. If you’re interested, you could have some sway.

To apply, email a brief statement of interest, your qualifications, and a resume to leesly.leon@rtd-denver.com. Check out the committee’s website for more information.
