The Regional Transportation District (RTD) Board of Directors will host a series of live telephone town hall meetings with constituents between October 24 and November 13.
Residents in each of RTD’s 15 districts will be called at random through an automated system and invited to take part in the public telephone forums. Those who choose to join in can learn the latest about bus and light rail service, RTD’s FasTracks transit expansion program, and other projects.
“The response to our telephone town halls in the past was very positive,” said Board Chair Lorraine Anderson. “Not everyone can come to a public meeting, so this allows us to tap into technology to go straight to the people in the comfort of their homes.”
These interactive calls will reach out to some 450,000 people across the Denver metro area and allow board directors to converse with community members. Residents simply stay on the line after answering their phones and will be connected to the meeting automatically.
Anyone who doesn't receive a call but wishes to participate can dial 1-877-229-8493 and enter PIN number 112070. During the session, participants can ask board members questions and use their keypad to answer live polls.

FasTracks is RTD’s voter-approved transit expansion program to build 122 miles of commuter rail and light rail, 18 miles of bus rapid transit service, add 21,000 new parking spaces, redevelop Denver Union Station, and redirect bus service to connect the eight-county district better.
