    Regarding micro transit from cap hill to cherry creek- a better solution would be to increase the frequency of the downing (12) bus, making for an easy connection to the 83. This would be a much more efficient use of resources and contribute to the grid system that denveright is aiming for. I doubt the chariot subsidy will be sustainable.

    For some reason the downing st bus was left of the list of recommendations for high frequency transit in the Denver Moves plan.

      Not a bad idea; here’s the catch. The 12 bus runs from Hampden and Penn to 120th and Washington. The point of Chariot is to focus on Cap Hill to Cherry Creek. Maybe a local shuttle that runs along Downing within central Denver?

        Yeah, running from 38th and Blake to Louisiana Pearl station would connect a lot of destinations in the densest parts of the city.
