Regional Transit District (RTD) provides bus and light rail service to the Denver metro area. The voter-approved FasTracks expansion program is increasing access and improving transportation options across the region, including new rail lines, bus services, parking facilities and transit-oriented development.
Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) maintains interstates, US highways and in-city state highway routes. CDOT’s Division of Transit & Rail is responsible for the planning, development, operation, and integration of transit and rail into the statewide transportation system.
Denver Regional Council of Governments includes representatives from more than 50 local government agencies in the greater Denver metro area. DRCOG has served as the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the Denver region since 1977, acting as a forum for a collaborative transportation planning process.
As our population grows, Denver needs more transportation choices to move more people – not just vehicles – into, out of and within our city each day. For the first time, and with input from the community, Denver is planning for local transit choices and improvements to move people around town safely and reliably. The Denver Moves: Transit plan will create a local vision that will build on and complement RTD’s regional system. We will also take a closer look at implementation strategies and funding options for local transit improvements. Read more and get involved!
