U.S. 36 bus riders weigh in on preferred buses for
BRT service

DENVER, November 25, 2013 - An
overwhelming majority of Regional Transportation District (RTD) bus
passengers who ride daily along U.S. 36 said they preferred to ride in
an over-the-road coach bus, versus a vehicle with low floor and fast
boarding characteristics, according to a new ridership survey by
RTD.

Eighty-six percent of current passengers
surveyed said they preferred riding in a coach-type bus and placed the
most value on a smooth, quiet ride and space for their belongings. The
findings are important as RTD staff considers a bus vehicle design for
the planned U.S. 36 bus rapid transit (BRT) service between Table Mesa
Park-n-Ride in Boulder and Union Station in downtown
Denver.
