Paul Solano member of the RTD Board of Directors, informed that the institution is studying a plan of special discounted fares for low income users. “The 25-member working group evaluated RTD’s pass program and created a recommendation. The commission’s report will be reviewed by RTD staff and considered for approval by our board of directors.  The current recommendation retains EcoPass, Neighborhood EcoPass, CollegePass and the nonprofit program and adds a low-income pass and a youth pass” explained Solano, who represents Thornton, Commerce City y Brighton.

Solano stated that he would vote for these two recommendations. “I was pleased to see the proposed youth pass in this recommendation, as I know a lot of new college students would use it to access the Auraria Campus in downtown Denver” he explained. The official explained that the decision will be made in 2018, with public meetings taking place towards the end of the year. Implementation of the new fares would take place at the beginning of 2019.

Progress on Line N

The board director commented about the progress being made on the construction of Line N, that serves residents of the northern Metro Area. “Construction is moving along at full force – more than 75 percent complete. The station platforms, plazas and parking facilities along 13 miles of the 18.5-mile corridor are taking shape” he said. Solano clarified that this line won’t go beyond the current endpoint of the line at the Eastlake & 124th Station. “The population density there now doesn’t support the extension” explained Solano. 

He also referenced the new collective contract for RTD employees. “I was pleased to vote last month to approve a new, three-year contract that offers a competitive starting wage and addresses employee working conditions that had not been updated in many years. My hope is that this new contract enables RTD to better serve its current employees and shows others that the agency is a great place to work”, concluded Solano.
