    Riders of RTD’s P-route express bus between Parker and Downtown Denver feel shortchanged…

    Interesting article and a another example for how downtown is the biggest beneficiary of RTD bus service as well as how popular Express routes are. Eventually it would seem RTD should provide Parker bus service just to Nine Mile Station or to RidgeGate Station. It’s also another reason why (urban) light rail should run along So Broadway from the Civic Center to the I-25 Station.
