Recommendations

Provide information in Spanish

Increase seating

Construct additional Lighting

Offer discounted ValuPasses


Provide information in spanish
Provide Information in Spanish

Why this should happen:

Inexpensive and effective

No current Spanish interface on RTD and other websites

Low-income correlation with Hispanic and other minority groups

Half the population commutes out of county for work

Increase public feedback and ridership


Increase seating
Increase Seating

Why this should happen:

Can be constructed through multiple phases, and would benefit all users

Many medical services including the VA are in or bordering Arapahoe County

This increases the use of Arapahoe County public transit of 65+ residing outside of the county

65+ may rely on public transit as they transition away from a personal vehicle

Also may have fixed or restrictive incomes


Construct additional lighting
Construct Additional Lighting

Why this should happen:

Many stops along Route 10 are not highly visible, and few have adequate lighting

Many schools along Route 10 surveyed

Most often using buses in the early morning and in the late evening for after school jobs or extracurricular activities

Increase visibility of individuals waiting at a bus stop

Reduce crime that is likely to occur in darker areas


Offer discounted valupasses
Offer Discounted ValuPasses

Why this should happen:

An annual RTD annual ValuPass is $1,936

This is roughly 10% of the annual salary of a single parent with one dependent living at the threshold of the Federal Poverty Line

If this were offered to low-income individuals, it could reduce an extreme barrier, providing an real transit option

If more low-income individuals could afford the ValuPass, it would increase ridership all around

Little to no discounted public transportation fare programs for low-income
