REGIONAL TRANSPORTATION DISTRICTCHIEF ADMINISTRATION OFFICER
Located in Denver, Colorado, the Regional Transportation District (RTD) is the region’s public transit agency created in 1969 by the Colorado General Assembly, connecting Denver residents through an affordable, safe, clean, reliable, accessible, and customer friendly community-oriented transportation network. As a nationally recognized leader, RTD provides public transit services, including rail, bus, access, and shuttle services across 2,400 square miles to 40 municipalities (3.1 million people) within eight counties including Boulder, Broomfield, Denver, Jefferson and parts of Adams, Arapahoe, Douglas and Weld counties. RTD is governed by a 15-member, publicly elected Board of Directors each serving a four-year term.
The region prides itself on innovation, inclusion, multi-culturalism, diversity, and environmental sustainability and RTD’s vision is to further enhance the region’s quality of life as well as to augment the pattern of urban development throughout the region. RTD continues to develop dynamic programs to benefit both business and the community it serves, making RTD an important cornerstone for the Denver community.
In 2004, RTD embarked upon the nation’s largest public transportation capital expansion program. RTD has been steadily working on its commitment to deliver on this voter-approved program, known as FasTracks. While, circumstances have changed and budgets have been stressed with economic events occurring such as the 2008 recession, in 2019, RTD embarked upon a two-year “Reimagine RTD” effort. Even with this effort underway, uncertainties still exist with COVID-19 and other unforeseen factors arising.
As such, RTD is continuously listening to its communities’ needs and striving to find necessary funding and cost savings that will support creative transit solutions to uphold its commitment to provide safe, timely, affordable, convenient, accessible and equitable transit solutions to the entire region. By reimaging transit and creating a new vision, RTD is committed to supporting the economic engine that the greater Denver region has become while also being a key partner in social, economic, environmental, and sustainable development programs.
