Why is Denver still expanding I-70? The move to tear down I-980 in Oakland shows that forward-thinking officials elsewhere get it: The problems associated with mega-motorways in urban neighborhoods outweigh the benefits.
Today Mayor Michael Hancock gathered with community members at City Hall to share a set of plans that will guide how Denver will change to keep its people housed, healthy and safely getting to the places they need to go over the next 20 years.
Lyft follows Uber again with a new feature that displays public transit options within its app. Officials hope the new feature will boost the tiny number of RTD riders who already use ride sharing services to get to rail stations and bus stops.
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.
Quiet will finally come to people who live and work along the A-Line train to the airport. Commuter and freight trains will stop routinely blowing their horns at the line's nine road crossings within Denver starting March 1.
