Denver Moves Transit

About the Denver Moves: Transit Plan

As Denver continues to grow, we must provide more reliable and safe mobility options to move more people where they need to go, and improve connections to key destinations and between neighborhoods. Denver Moves: Transit is Denver’s citywide transit plan creating a local transit vision and guiding framework that calls for improving the quality of transit options in our city – making transit more reliable, more frequent, and more convenient for daily use.

Throughout 2021, the project team is developing implementation scenarios for the Denver Moves: Transit vision in close coordination with a community Task Force and a Technical Working Group. Draft implementation scenarios will be available for initial public review during late Summer/Early Fall 2021.

 

  • Recommends investments in key corridors in Denver that will result in high-quality and reliable transit.
  • Recommends  a network of frequent transit service corridors, to provide service that arrives more often, all day, every day.
  • Identifies improvements in pedestrian and bike infrastructure and amenities to make it easier and safer for people walking and biking to get to transit.
  • Promotes transit-supportive land use  and developments and instills a “sense of place” at transit stations and stops in Denver.
  • Recommends continued support for affordable fare programs fare payment technology to make transit more affordable easier to use, and programs that promote and encourage the use of transit.
