Resources for Better Riding
I am fully committed to working toward the best public policy possible as a Board member, but we can all work together more effectively if we’re all informed and engaged. Are you interested in learning more about where and when you can ride, how you can reach out to the Board or RTD staff, or what RTD’s planning for your region or neighborhood? Of course you are! Here are a few sources for information about the Board, RTD, and related transportation options that can help us address our most pressing issues as a community in the years to come.
