Denver Moves: Transit Workshops and Activities

The Denver Moves: Transit team has kicked-off its spring outreach activities and would appreciate your help in spreading the word. Denver is hosting neighborhood drop-in workshops and has launched the Build Your Own Transit System online activity:

Denver Moves: Transit Neighborhood Drop-in Workshops

The Denver Moves: Transit team will be out in community holding neighborhood drop-in workshops at locations throughout Denver.

Build Your Own Transit System Activity

Denver Moves: Transit team also launched the Build Your Own Transit System online activity – this interactive activity gives you the opportunity to select different options that make up your ideal transit system. As you develop their system, you’ll see benefits (e.g., increased ridership, improved travel time, improved passenger experience, etc.) in real time. The responses to this activity and input gathered from the workshops will guide the Denver Moves: Transit plan and shape its recommendations. The direct link to the activity is: https://denvermovestransit.org/
