COMMERCE CITY — Residents who use the 104X Express Bus that runs through Commerce City will get a chance to sound off on a plan to additional trips to the daily route.
The Regional Transportation District will be hodling a public meeting at 6 p.m. Thursday, May 8, at the rec center, 17910 E. Parkside Drive North, to discuss a proposal to add an additional morning and afternoon trip to the route.
The 104X Express Bus Route kicked off last year and has seen significant levels of ridership in the months following.
More than 2,692 Commerce City residents list Denver as their city of employment, and with 24,783 residents in the Northern Range, that can quickly create a traffic jam during the morning commute. The city currently contributes up to $37,000 annually for the route.
The RTD express bus picks up passengers along East 104th Avenue and continues on to Interstate 76 before connecting to the Interstate 25 HOV lanes, with an end point at the Central Business District in downtown Denver.
Currently, there are three morning rush hour service pick-up times and three evening drop-off times.
Attendance at the meeting is not required to comment. Fax your comments to 303-299-2227 or email firstname.lastname@example.org no later than May 15.
