Regular transit riders are giving up on Denver’s buses and trains and hopping into road-clogging cars instead. RTD keeps passengers waiting too long and its routes fail to go to the places where most people want to go, says a new survey.
Fixing this stretch of public space is not technically the responsibility of Denver Public Works, because Denver's sidewalk policy unrealistically expects private homeowners to maintain public sidewalks.
Everywhere you look, Denver's transportation system treats cars and drivers like VIPs at a club while bus riders get the D-list treatment, queuing at the door just hoping for a table. Transit advocates wanted to flip the script.
