RTD proposes reduction in service along R Line in Aurora

DENVER — The Regional Transportation District is proposing changes to the R Line through Aurora.

The proposal is focused on a reduction in service during off-peak hours south of the Florida Station.

RTD studied passenger counts at all stations and determined it would save more than 15,000 hours and an estimated $2.83 million.

According to RTD, service would still run between the Peoria and Lincoln stations during peak hours on weekdays from 5 a.m. to 9 a.m., and 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.

During off-peak hours and on weekends, RTD is proposing to keep trains running every 15 minutes, but service between the Iliff and Lincoln stations would be discontinued.
